“We need to play and win the three games to qualify,” Warren Deutrom, Cricket Ireland’s chief executive, said. “After in-depth consideration, it was decided that this approach gave us the best chance of securing automatic qualification, particularly given the fact that the matches have to be played before the World Cup Super League cut-off in mid-May.”

“We need a venue where the weather patterns and playing facilities. Give us the best chance of mitigating any rain impact. Unfortunately, it is likely too early in the Irish season to prepare pitches to ODI. Standard unless we have a remarkably dry April. This only underscores our determination to accelerate the development of our permanent venue infrastructure. An objective which remains among my most pressing.”

“The Cloud County Ground has a long-standing history of staging international sides, and we are proud to have been chosen as the host venue in an important series for both sides.

“We look forward to welcoming supporters to Chelmsford and engaging. With our local communities to put on a memorable experience for everyone involved.”

This is on top of the already announced Test match at Lord’s in June and the three-match ODI series in September against England.

“Making our summer slightly unusual is that we have not been able to look at organising any bilateral cricket between mid-June and mid-July given. The potential of our participation in the 50-over Men’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier. It won’t be until after the Bangladesh series that we will learn whether we are heading to the Qualifier in Zimbabwe.

“Also, in late July we have the ICC T20 World Cup European Qualifier – which is another set of away fixtures. Given the rather different shape to this summer. Fans are encouraged to buy their tickets early for home matches given the anticipated interest and demand it will generate. Even if the series against India is half as dramatic as last year’s. It will be more than worth the price of admission.
