India will begin with their preparation for the England tour when they square off against Gary Wilson-led Ireland in the first of the two-match Twenty20 International series on June 27 (Wednesday) at Malahide Cricket Club (MCC) in Dublin.

Meanwhile, India has stepped into this country after a gap of 11 years and a lot has changed since then.

Therefore, it will be India’s first T20I assignment since the Tri-nation Nidahas Trophy was held in Sri Lanka. The national selectors for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have already named a strong squad.

The leader of the pack, Virat Kohli is back in the squad after nursing his shoulder injury during recently-culminated Indian Premier League (IPL).

While India will use this opportunity to adjust to the challenging conditions, Ireland is confident to create an upset.

Ireland skipper Wilson noted any team could beat anybody on a given day. Ireland had roped in India-born Simi Singh for the two-match series. Over the years, Simi has developed into a potent weapon for Ireland.

It will be a cracker of a game with the tickets already sold out at The Village.

Weather Report:

According to Accu Weather, currently, it is mostly sunny in Dublin where India and Ireland will square off for the first T20I.

The temperature is hovering around 20-degree Celsius and the conditions will only improve as the day will progress.

Meanwhile, for a change, there will be no rain at all, however, the fans need to be brave to believe this. The humidity will also be on the lower side and with the game starting at 4:00 PM local time there will be no dew as well.

The small ground will treat the jam-packed crowd with a high-scoring game as it seems. But the groundsmen should always be aware as things can change pretty quickly in Ireland as far as the weather is concerned.
