India and Ireland are set to meet in the two-match T20I series at The Village in Dublin. The games will take place on Sunday, June 26, and Tuesday, June 28.
Both teams have named their respective teams for their upcoming white-ball matches. Hardik Pandya will be managing the Indian squad for the first time after successfully leading the Gujarat Titans in the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Rishabh Pant, who captained the Men in the Blue team in the five-game T20I series against South Africa, rested. Right batsman Rahul Tripathi also received his first call from India after performing exceptionally well with Sunrisers Hyderabad at the IPL 2022.
Imran Malik and Archdeep Singh, who did not get the chance to play against the Proteas team, were included. Sanju Samson also has a place on the national team.
Meanwhile, Ireland under Andrew Balberni dropped Shane Jetkett and Simi Singh from the squad. The hosts called up right batsman Stephen Doheny and defibrillator Conor Olfert for their upcoming matches.
It should be noted that Ireland has not yet overtaken India in a shorter form. In 2018, India defeated Ireland 2-0 in the T20I series at the same venue.
