India to play two T20 matches against Ireland ahead of July England tour
BCCI has said the Indian cricket team would play two T20 internationals—on 27 June and 29 June—against Ireland ahead of their tour of England in July
New Delhi: India's cricket board said Wednesday it would play two matches against Ireland ahead of the tour of England in July.
Ireland—who were awarded Test status alongside Afghanistan last year—will host India in Dublin on 27 June and 29 June for two Twenty20 games.
India last toured Ireland in 2007, playing a one-day international in Belfast which they won by nine wickets.
The two sides have met only once for a match in the shortest format, squaring off in Nottingham during the 2009 World T20.
India have tours of both England and Australia lined up for the 2018 season.
