Ireland and Afghanistan will play a five match T20I series in Belfast later this summer.

The games will all be at Stormont, taking place on August 9, 11, 12, 15 and 17.

The teams were due to play a Test match and ODI's as well, but have opted to concentrate solely on T20s to help prepare for the T20 World Cup in Australia this October.

The series is set to be a key part of Ireland Menís build-up to the ICC Menís T20 World Cup 2022 in October.
