The Indian T20 team will take on Ireland in a three-match T20 series in August this year, Cricket Ireland said in a statement on Friday.
"Irish cricket fans will be able to enjoy watching the world's number one T20 International side, India, when the Asian juggernauts return to Malahide for a three-match T20I series this August," Cricket Ireland said in its statement.
Hardik Pandya, the new T20 captain, had led the team during the two-match series at the same venue last year. However, with the 50-over World Cup in sight one wonders if the BCCI would risk playing Hardik in a series that will offer little or no context to India's preparation for the ODI World Cup in India. The series is scheduled to be played from August 18 to 23.
