Cricket Ireland announced on Tuesday that the Indian cricket team will visit their nation for a T20I series before the major event in an ODI World Cup year.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) released the eagerly anticipated schedule for the tournament scheduled to be held in India later in October this year.
India is scheduled to visit Ireland exactly one year after the series’ specifics were announced on June 27.
INDIA’S TOUR OF IRELAND FOR A 3-MATCH T20I SERIES SCHEDULE HAS BEEN RELEASED
Ireland will host a three-match Twenty20 International series that will start on August 18 and end on August 23. All of the games will take place in Malahide, which is outside of Dublin.
The series will start exactly one week after the conclusion of India’s tour of the West Indies. The team will compete in multiple match types, including a five-match T20I series, between July and August.
In a statement, Warren Deutrom, Chief Executive of Cricket Ireland, said, “We’re thrilled to welcome India Men back to Ireland for the second time in 12 months.”
“In 2022, two of the matches were sold out; this year’s three-match series should allow even more spectators to enjoy what is always a memorable event. “
“We extend our sincere gratitude to the BCCI for continuing to include Ireland in the Indian team’s busy schedule and for working with us to create a schedule that is as fan-friendly as possible.”
“Playing games on a Friday and Sunday should hopefully increase the number of spectators available.”
The complete schedule for India’s tour of Ireland is as follows:
The first T20I between Ireland and India will take place on August 18 at Malahide and will begin at 3 p.M. Local time/7:30 p.M. IST.
The second T20I between Ireland and India will take place on August 20 at Malahide and will begin at 3 p.M. Local time/7:30 p.M. IST.
The third Twenty20 international will take place on August 23 at Malahide and will begin at 3 p.M. Local time/7:30 p.M. IST.
India will be visiting Ireland for the third T20I series and fourth overall during this trip. In 2007, they went on their first-ever tour for a single ODI game. They had to travel to Ireland for two T20I series in 2018 and 2022, respectively.
