India will play a two-match T20I series on June 26 and 28 at the Village Ground in Dublin.

The short Ireland tour coincides with the tour of England where India will play the rescheduled fifth Test against England from July 1. India lead the series 2-1.

Hence, Laxman will replace head coach Rahul Dravid. This will be the first time when Laxman will be working with the national team.
