After completion of the Indian Premier League, the Men in Blue are all set to travel to England and Ireland for a short tour. The tour is set to begin on July 1. The tour consists of 3 ODI and 3 T20Is and rescheduled fifth Test from last year’s Test series.
According to the recent developments, the Indian team is set to play 2 warm-up T20I matches against Derbyshire and Northamptonshire, scheduled for July 1 & July 3.
Now with the fifth Test of last year’s Test series starting on July 1, first-team players will be busy playing and preparing for that Test match. However, the second string squad is expected to play these warm-up matches.
India will travel to The Incora County Ground to face Derbyshire in a Twenty20 Tour Fixture on Friday 1 July (7 pm start). Then in the 2nd warm match, Northamptonshire will welcome the number one ranked ICC team in T20I to Wantage Road. Thus, the first practice match will be played at the Incora County Ground in Derby, while the second game will be held at the County Ground in Northampton.
Before the tour of Three Lions gets underway, Team India is set to play two T20I games against Ireland on June 26 and June 28 respectively.
