The dates for the two matches have been finalized as June 27 and June 29.

India will tour Ireland for two T20 Internationals in June before the full series in England from July to September.

The T20Is will be held at Dublin on June 27 and 29 respectively.

Virat Kohli had yet to begin his worldwide career when India defeated Ireland in a one-day global in June 2007 in Belfast, while fellow star players Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rohit Sharma could be among those to feature in the Irish capital. Interestingly, the short T20I series will serve as a warm-up ground for India's much talked about tour of England that commences in July this year.

Cricket Ireland CEO Warren Deutrom said he was "most grateful" to BCCI.

The current Indian squad includes the world's third ranked batsman in T20, Virat Kohli, and the games will be the first T20 internationals for Ireland head coach Graham Ford. "We are sure crowds will be keen to get a rare glimpse of some of the sport's T20 superstars in the height of summer in Dublin", Deutrom said. "In what is a signal year for us, we are also delighted to be working once again with Malahide CC and Fingal County Council who always help us put on a great show for players and fans alike".

Virat Kohli's men will play three T20s, three ODIs and five Tests against England, ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2019. They are set to host Pakistan for their first ever Test match in May 2018.
