The Ireland men’s team and supporters will get to witness one of the most beautiful cricket grounds on the planet next March after the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala was selected to host their three games in the first-round stage of the World T20.

Located in the far north of India, the 23,000-capacity stadium is situated at over 1,300 metres above sea level against a stunning backdrop of the Dauladhar hill range.

Ireland will open their Group A campaign against Oman on Wednesday, March 9th, and also play Bangladesh and the Netherland­s with the group winners playing hosts India, Pakistan, Australia and New Zealand in Kolkata and Bengaluru.

The Ireland women’s team have been drawn with New Zealand, Sri Lanka, South Africa and defending champions Australia.

They will put in the air miles, with two games in Mohali, one in Chennai on the southeast coast and one in New Delhi.
