Between July 1 to 17, the squad will play an all-format series versus England, which will include a postponed Test, 3 T20Is, and 3 ODIs, before flying to Trinidad on July 18, only 4 days just before the West Indies series starts.

“Two batches of Indian team (one comprising the Test specialists) are expected to leave for Ireland and England on June 20, after the five-match home T20I series against South Africa from June 9 to 19,” the source said.
