Virender Sehwag: He may have spent his time rushing to the doctors in Delhi and back, but the swashbuckling batsman is now fully fit and raring to ambush the opposition quite like he did in India's opening match against Bangladesh scoring 175.
Sachin Tendulkar: The Master Blaster announced his form in an emphatic fashion against England, slamming a ton to become the first player to hit 5 centuries in World Cup history. It'll be the perfect setting for him to take the tally to 6.
Yuvraj Singh: He had been out of form for most of the build up to the World Cup, but when it came to the big stage in the important match against England, he went out all guns blazing. Yuvi can be expected to carry that form forward against the Irish.
William Porterfield: The Irish captain may not have fired in this edition of the World Cup but has been known to create quite an impact with the bat and this could just be his match. He is certainly one player whose back India would love to see.
Kevin O'Brien: He may have entered the World Cup as part of a team termed as minnows, but now the Irish team is widely designated as 'giant killers' and the tournament's fastest centurion has much to do with getting Ireland that tag. Kevin O'Brien will once again lead the Irish pack.
