India beat Ireland by seven wickets in a rain-hit first T20 here on Sunday. Sent in to bat, Harry Tector slammed a 33-ball 64 laced with six boundaries and three sixes to single-handedly lift Ireland from 22 for three to past the 100-mark after rain reduced the match to a 12-over a side contest. India then returned to overhaul the target in 9.2 overs, scoring 111 for three, riding on Deepak Hooda's unbeaten 29-ball 47.
