IND vs IRE: Three T20 matches will be played between India and Ireland, details of the series revealed before the ODI World Cup
Dublin. The Indian cricket team will tour Ireland in August this year for a three-match T20 International series. Cricket Ireland gave this information on Friday. “Cricket fans in Ireland will be able to enjoy watching India, the world’s number one T20 International team, when Asia’s top players return to Malahide this August for a three-match T20I series,” Cricket Ireland said.
Hardik Pandya, the new captain of the Indian T20 team, led the team during the two-match series at the same venue last year. With India playing the ODI World Cup at home this year, it remains to be seen whether the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will take the risk of playing Hardik in a series that will be of little significance in terms of World Cup preparations. The series, however, is worth a lot to the Ireland Cricket Board as its broadcast revenue will improve their financial situation.
The series will be held from August 18 to 23. Warren Deutrom, Chief Executive Officer of Cricket Ireland, said, “The summer 2023 season will be like a celebration in terms of men’s cricket. It will be very special for the fans. We can confirm today that India will tour Ireland for the second year in a row. Our team will first take part in the ODI series against Bangladesh in May under the World Cup Super League. I will play ODI series against England.
