Ireland to host India in two T20 internationals in June

Virat Kohli could play at Malahide

The match was played during the 2009 ICC World T20. In the one T20I these two teams have played together, India came out on top, and won the match by eight wickets.

The T20Is will be held at Dublin on June 27 and 29 respectively.

India will kick off their long tour of England with the first T20I at Old Trafford on July 3.

India cruised to a nine-wicket victory over Ireland in a rain-interrupted ODI in Belfast 11 years ago.

BCCI on Wednesday announced that the Indian team will be playing two T20I against Ireland, before their tour to England in July this year.


Cricket Ireland CEO Warren Deutrom said he was "most grateful" to BCCI.

"It's fantastic news for the lads and fans alike", said Ireland head coach Graham Ford, who will be in charge of his first T20s with the team.

"We are sure crowds will be keen to get a rare glimpse of some of the sport's T20 superstars in the height of summer in Dublin". India and South Africa then played three ODIs at the same venue, Rahul Dravid's men bouncing back from the loss of the first game to clinch the series 2-1.

2018 is shaping up to be a busy year for Ireland with a four-match ODI series against the UAE and Scotland this week before taking part in World Cup qualifiers in Zimbabwe in March. The second Test starts Saturday (January 13) in Centurion.
