A quick look at T20I records between these teams:
Best innings bowling:

India has visited Ireland a number of times in the past, as the usual practice has been to tag on short visits to Ireland whenever there is a major tour of England. Most of these matches have been one or two day matches which have neither List A nor first-class status.
India’s maiden tour of England in 1932 seems to have included matches against almost all the counties as well as other teams, but did not include a visit to Ireland.

Points to note:
Vizzy captained in this match and made his customary single digit score.
Lala Amarnath did not play.
India won by 10 wickets, thanks mainly to CK Nayudu (7wi and 10wm) and Merchant (71*).
