Ireland plays host to India for a two-match T20I series to be played on June 16 and 28 at the Village Ground in Dublin. This is India’s first trip to Ireland since 2018. India won the series 2-0 when they last toured the country. 

 Ireland has not played any competitive game in either of the three formats since featuring in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2022 in February. They have an uphill task of playing an Indian side filled with T20 superstars. The side is led by Hardik Pandya who recently led Gujarat Titans to their maiden IPL title. He returned fit into the team and is bowling well alongside his batting credentials.
