India will lock horns with Ireland in a two-match T20I series, which starts on June 26 (Sunday) in Dublin. Ace all-rounder Hardik Pandya will lead the side in the absence of regular cricketers, who are busy with the one-off Test against England.
This series will be another opportunity for youngsters to make a case for themselves ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year. It will be interesting to see if the management unleashes young Umran Malik in the fast bouncy wickets of Ireland.
Ireland, on the other hand, will look to bank on their recent form against the Men in Blue. They have a few talented cricketers on their roster and will look to play as a unit in front of their home fans.
