"We are excited to welcome back India to Ireland for the first time in 11 years".

The match will be played in the year 2019 and is set to be a historic match for sure.

Interestingly, it was Rohit Sharma's debut global game for India. During the tour, the Indian team will face the Irish side in a two-match T20I series. India will first play three T20Is, which will be followed by three ODIs and then five Tests.
