The detachment led by Hardik Pandya will initially play two games in Ireland on 26 and 28 June.
The fifth test between India and England will start on June 1. If it lasts all five days, it leaves very little room for players to recover and participate in the T20I series, which begins on July 7.
Recognizing that it would be difficult for players on the test team to participate in the T20 series, a BCCI source said:
“The rescheduled fifth test between India and England is set to take place in Birmingham from 1 to 5 July, while the first T20I of the England series will take place just two days later, on 7 July at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. it’s hard for players taking the test to switch to the T20I in such a short time. “
Claiming that the T20I team will play warm-up matches while the senior team competes in the fifth test, the source added:
“In such a scenario, the team selected for two T20Is in Ireland is asked to go to England after this short series, as the team will be in T20 mode.”
The source concluded:
“This country will actually play two warm-up T20 matches against local teams, while the ‘main’ Indian team will play the test match against the hosts at the same time.”
The men in blue kept the majority of players who took part in the recent 2-2 draw against South Africa at home for the series against Ireland. The changes include Rahul Tripati’s first call and Sanju Samson’s withdrawal.
Umran Malik and Arshdip Singh were included in the team, although they did not make any appearances against Proteus.
