Team India to play two T20Is in Ireland ahead of England tour

The Men in Blue will play two T20s in Dublin against Ireland on June 27 and 29

"The matches will of course be a huge challenge for the team, but what an opportunity for everyone to showcase their talents in front of a huge audience, both at the games and live on television", the 57-year-old former South Africa assistant coach added.

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has recently announced that the men in blue are all set to play over 80 global matches as a part of their FTP for the period between 2019 to 2023.

The dates for the two matches have been finalized as June 27 and June 29.

Also, with this tour of Ireland by India, they will become the 12th team and only 2nd Test playing nation to travel there for a T20I series.
