India tour of Ireland, 2022: Full squads, Fixtures & Preview: All you need to know
India will face Ireland in two T20s on June 26 and June 28 before they come up against England in a full-fledged series.
Right after the ongoing 5-match T20I series against South Africa, India will fly to Ireland for two T20Is. The BCCI has named a 17-member squad for the same.
Hardik Pandya is set to captain India for the first time after his title winning heroics for IPL debutants Gujarat Titans this year. Hardik was recently appointed the deputy to Rishabh Pant for the South Africa series after KL Rahul injured himself.
Now with Pant and all other Indian regulars set to be in England for the rescheduled 5th Test, India have had to name an inexperienced side, which still looks quite formidable, with all players having done quite well in the IPL. The squad has Rahul Tripathi and Sanju Samson as the two outstanding picks. Suryakumar Yadav also returns after injury.
Ireland have also named a 14-man squad for the two T20Is against India. The hosts have included the uncapped duo of Stephen Doheny and Conor Olphert in place of all-rounders Simi Singh and Shane Getkate, both of whom were part of the T20 World Cup Qualifier earlier this year.
Both the T20s which will be played on June 26 and June 28 will be held at The Village, Dublin.
