India to play South Africa in Ireland
April 12, 2007 23:38 IST
India will play South Africa in a three-match one-day international series in Ireland in June, Board of Control for Cricket in India secretary Niranjan Shah said on Thursday.
India's original opposition for the series were Australia, but Shah said that was never finalised.
"We were in discussions with everyone, including Sri Lanka. We played against Australia [in Malaysia last year] so we thought we will play against South Africa now," he said.
Shah said the dates have not been fixed yet, but would be in the last week of June.
India will also play Pakistan in a one-off, one-day match in Glasgow before heading for England in July for three tests and seven one-day internationals.
