The Indian cricket team will travel to Dublin to take on Ireland in a two-match T20I series, starting Sunday, June 26. All the matches of the shortest format will be played at Malahide Cricket Club.

In what will be Hardik Pandya’s first assignment as India’s T20I captain, India is set to play Ireland for only the fourth time in the shortest format. While their first meeting came in 2009 in ICC World Twenty20, the two teams crossed paths twice in 2018 during India’s tour of England.

Interestingly, India have a perfect record at Malahide Cricket Club in Dublin against Ireland, having won each of their last two meetings.

The visitors are set to miss the services of several first-team members as they are preparing for the Edgbaston Test which starts on July 1. 

Hence, veteran bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been named Hardik Pandya’s deputy while Raul Tripathi has received his maiden India call-up. On the other hand, T20 specialists Sanju Samson and Suryakumar Yadav have also returned to the team.

It’s important to note that former batter VVS Laxman will be India’s coach for the Ireland tour as Rahul Dravid will be with the Test squad in England.

Meanwhile, Andrew Balbirnie will be the skipper of the home team. Stephen Doheny and Conor Olphert have earned their maiden national team call-up.
