Some reports claimed that the same squad for Ireland tour will be retained for the England series. But one of the selectors confirmed to InsideSport that all senior players will be available.

With Chetan Sharma travelling with the squad for Ireland, the team selection meeting will be on a virtual call on June 28. Captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid will join the call from England.

But instead of a 15-member squad, India is expected to have a larger squad at disposal for the two warm-up matches. Most of the players from the Ireland tour will be available for the warm-up games before making way for senior players for the T20 series against England starting July 7.

“We have a set team. We just need to trim it a little for the England series to accommodate the seniors. Some of the guys will return home after the Ireland series. We will have a selection meeting soon. We will have a larger squad for contingency as the team will not be in a bio-bubble,” a member of the selection committee told InsideSport.
