India to tour Ireland before England

The T20Is will be played in Dublin.

The T20Is will be held at Dublin on June 27 and 29 respectively.

India last toured Ireland in 2007, playing a one-day worldwide in Belfast which they won by nine wickets.

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has recently announced that the men in blue are all set to play over 80 worldwide matches as a part of their FTP for the period between 2019 to 2023. During the tour, the Indian team will face the Irish side in a two-match T20I series.

"We are excited to welcome back India to Ireland for the first time in 11 years", said Deutrom.

Ireland will host India for the first time since 2007 when the sides meet in two T20s this summer.

"Cricket Ireland is most grateful to BCCI for its support in the midst of the team's hectic schedule, and we look forward to working with them on similar opportunities in the future". The Indian team is now touring South Africa for a three-match Test series, six-match ODI series and a three-match T20I series.

Mumbai: Virat Kohli-led India will embark on a tour to Ireland later this year in June, ahead of their series against England, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), confirmed on Wednesday.

2018 is shaping up to be a busy and historic year for the Irish who start the year with a four-match ODI series against the UAE and Scotland this week.
