To provide rest to the Indian squad ahead of the Ireland-India series, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced a three-day break for the Indian squad.
According to sources, the BCCI announced a break before the Hardik Pandya-led Indian team left for the two-match series in Malahide.
On the 20th of June, the BCCI said, “All the players selected for the Ireland T20s are going home for a three-day break.” A senior official of the BCCI said, “It’s only fair that they spend some time at home.”
Notably, after the break, the Hardik Pandya-led Indian squad will assemble in Mumbai on the 23rd of June.
Notably, the T20I party, after playing the two games in Malahide on the 26th and the 28th of June, would move to the United Kingdom for T20 practice matches, which would coincide with the Test team’s ‘fifth’ game from last year in Edgbaston from the 1st of July to the 5th of July.
However, it is understood that not all the players in the current T20I set-up will be retained for the England tour, as many regulars will be making a comeback to the team.
Stay tuned for further updates.
