India will face Ireland in a two-match T20I series, starting June 26 at Dublin, Malahide. The match will start at 9 pm IST. Hardik Pandya will lead the Indian Team in absence of regular captain Rohit Sharma.
India are visiting Ireland for the first time since 2018. Both sides have faced off against one another three times in the shortest format, with the Men in Blue coming out on top each time.
Suryakumar is set to return to the Indian side. The visitors could also be tempted to give an opportunity for the uncapped speedster Umran or left-arm pace bowler Arshdeep.
Both all-rounders – Curtis Campher and Gareth Delany – are set to play. Barry McCarthy could edge out Craig Young for the third seamer’s slot.
Ireland is yet to beat India in a cricket match.
