As per the latest report filed by Cricbuzz, the Indian Test team will go up against Leicestershire County Cricket Club in Leicester from June 24 to play a wamr-up match. This will be India's part of their preparations ahead of their red-ball and white-ball matches in June and July. The fixture, between India and Leicestershire, is set to be a four-day game.
"It will be a four-day game, which is supposed to be a first-class fixture as well," the Cricbuzz report reads.
Furthermore, the report suggested that India may also play two more warm-up games against Derbyshire and Northamptonshire, on July 1 and 3 respectively once they finish their two-match T20I series against Ireland in Dublin. There will be three ODIs and as many T20Is between India and England, scheduled to be played between July 7 and 17. The Test match, meanwhile, will conclude on July 5.
There has been a huge possibility of two different Indian squads for England and Ireland. They had a similar scenario last year when they toured Sri Lanka and England in a same time.
