This summer will be known as the ‘Season of the Stars’ as it will be the greatest home season of international cricket in Irish history. Over a 15-game international home season, Ireland’s senior team will face four full members, including many of the best players in the world. The men of Ireland will play white ball series against India, New Zealand, South Africa and Afghanistan over a two-month period, starting June 26 in Malahide.
India’s men in blue are set to re-enact the two-game series that took place at Malahide in 2018 in front of a sold-out crowd during the hot summer.
A Times of India report suggests that the broadcast rights for the two matches India will travel to Ireland will earn them more revenue than all matches against other countries in the remaining season.
This just goes to show the true value that the Indian cricket team has in the world of international cricket and how regardless of what the rest of the world thinks of BCCI and who they run things in India, they are without arguably the most important cricket. organization that no one would want to ignore.
Indian cricket fans have reacted to how BCCI will generate virtually the bulk of Irish cricket’s annual revenue within days:
Dedicated to all the hate mongers of IPL, the powerhouse of Indian cricket.

The report also suggests that while Team India will be touring the land of the Irish, some of the team’s biggest names including Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah will not be part of the trip and will be rested.
The reason behind resting these marquee players was to give them some time to recover from the extended Indian Premier League season. and get ready for the sixth and final game of the India-England Test Series which has not been completed back in 2021 due to the pandemic.
