MUMBAI: India are likely to retain the squad for the two-match Ireland tour for the three-match T20I series in England, TOI has learnt.
Led by all-rounder Hardik Pandya, Team India will play two T20Is on June 26 and June 28 in Dublin.

“The rescheduled fifth Test between India and England is supposed to be held in Birmingham from July 1-5, while the first T20I of the England series will take place only two days later, on July 7 at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. It will be difficult for the players involved in the Test to switch to the T20Is at such a short notice. In such a scenario, the squad picked for the two-T20Is in Ireland has been asked to go to England after that short series, since that outfit will be in T20 mode. This side will, in fact, play two T20 warm-up matches against local sides while the ‘main’ Indian team will be playing the Test match against the hosts at the same time,” a source said.
The selectors have not yet announced the India squad for the white-ball part of the England tour.
