India’s limited-overs squad led by Virat Kohli had departed for the extensive tour from Mumbai on Saturday. The team will stay in London for a short while before flying to Dublin for the two-match T20I series against Ireland.
Kohli had earlier posted an image of the squad members as they departed for London, writing, “Off we go, UK bound!”
Early on Sunday morning, the BCCI took to Twitter to post images of the team arriving in London.
India’s tour of the UK starts with the Ireland leg in which they will play the two T20Is at the Malahide Cricket Club at the Village in Dublin. The two matches will take place on June 27 and 29.
Upon the completion of the Ireland series, the team will fly back to England to kick-start the limited-overs series against Eoin Morgan’s men. The England leg of the tour will start with a three-match T20I series against the hosts. The three T20Is will be followed by as many ODIs following which the limited-overs stalwarts like MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina will return to India while Test specialists like Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Ajinkya Rahane will join up with the rest of the squad in England.
India will then take on England in an eagerly anticipated five-match Test series which will get underway at Edgbaston on August 1. Kohli’s men will culminate their long tour with the final Test at the Oval in London which will start on September 7.
