For the last couple of days, the Indian cricketers have been training in London, ahead of their tour to Ireland.
With the first T20 scheduled at the Malahide in Dublin on Wednesday, Sportstar understands the team will reach the city only a day prior to the match.
With the weather conditions quite similar in both the cities - on Monday, London had a temperature of 28 degree Celsius in the morning, while that of Dublin was 24 degrees - there should not be a problem in acclimatising to the conditions despite reaching the city only a day before the match.
In case of international assignments, teams usually prefer reaching the destination a couple of days prior to the match. But that should not be a factor as it takes just a little more than an hour to reach Dublin from London by flight.
With the two-match T20 series against Ireland, India will start its nearly three-month tour of United Kingdom.
After wrapping up in Ireland on Friday, India will be heading back to England for the limited overs series, followed by the much-awaited Test series which gets underway on August 1.
To get used to the conditions, the team had left for the UK last week and ever since reaching London, the players have made it a point to train hard in the city.
Senior players like Suresh Raina have also taken to social media platforms, posting pictures from the camp in London.
Interestingly, apart from Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik, this will be the first-ever Ireland tour for all other members of the Indian side.
Only Karthik and Sharma had featured in the Indian team which had toured this part of the world for the last time in 2007.
With the Malahide surface expected to help the seamers, it will be an opportunity for India to test its fast bowling department ahead of the long England tour.
