BCCI selection panel has announced squads for the five-match South Africa series at home and one-off Test against England in Birmingham
Rising fast bowler Umran Malik alongside fellow pacer Arshdeep Singh have been given their maiden India T20I call-ups while Dinesh Karthik has been recalled following an excellent IPL 2022.
The series starts from June 9 in Delhi with the fifth and final match to be played on Jun 19 in Bengaluru.
After the conclusion of the T20Is, the Indian team’s next assignment will be the tour of UK where they are scheduled to play two T20Is vs Ireland followed by a one-off Test and six white-ball matches against England.
The T20Is against Ireland will be played on June 26 and June 28 – both in Dublin.
The one-off Test against England in Birmingham, starting July 1, is the rescheduled contest of the five-match series last year that was cancelled after the tourists expressed concerns over covid cases in their camp ahead of the fixture, originally slated to be played in Manchester.
The T20Is get underway from July 7 while the ODI series starts from July 12.
