Transcending its English roots, cricket is now played in some 125 countries around the world. The passion for the game has forged a strong interest in both India and Ireland and in June, the two national teams will face off in two T20 internationals that promise to be a thriller.
It will be the first time that the sides have met on Irish soil since they played an ODI (One Day International) in Belfast in 2007, a match that India won by nine wickets. India has played against Ireland just once in the T20 format when the two sides met in Nottingham during the 2009 ICC World T20, in which India triumphed by 8 wickets.
These two matches will be seen by cricket lovers across the globe and are sure to make for a cracking test of strength and skill. Whatever the results, an India vs Ireland match is a winning combination in terms of entertainment!
