BCCI agreed to play two additional T20s during Jay Shah’s visit to Dubai earlier this week for ICC and ACC meeting. However, both boards have stayed silent on the matter so far.
The long tour is expected to begin on July 10-12 with the two-match Test series. It will conclude with the five-match T20 series in August. However, there is still no word on whether Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma will play in T20s. Considering the next T20 World Cup will be in the West Indies and the US, the selectors will need to take a call on whether they see the senior players in the squad.The T20 squad will then travel to Ireland to play a three-match series as already announced by Cricket Ireland last month.
