India Tour Of Ireland 2018 Schedule, Squads & Live Scores

India Tour Of Ireland 2018 Schedule, Squads & Live Scores. Ireland will play 2007 World Twenty20 champions India in two T20 internationals in Dublin in June. The two T20I against India will both be played at Dublin, on June 27 and June 29.

The games will be the first T20 internationals for Ireland head coach Graham Ford. The South African is relishing the prospect of pitting his wits against such high profile opposition. “It’s fantastic news for the lads and fans alike,” said Ford, who only took the reins of the Irish side last month.India Tour Of Ireland 2018 Schedule, Squads & Live Scores

“The matches will of course be a huge challenge for the team. But what an opportunity for everyone to showcase their talents in front of a huge audience. Both at the games and live on television,” added the 57-year-old former South Africa head coach.

Ford, who has also coached Sri Lanka, said there was a potentially rich reward awaiting anyone who impressed. “I’m sure the players will respond positively to the occasion with the added incentive of knowing eye-catching displays could result in a possible IPL contract,” said Ford.India Tour Of Ireland 2018 Schedule, Squads & Live Scores
