Afghanistan and Ireland will play a full tour, comprising three T20 Internationals, five ODIs and a Test match, at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket stadium in Dehradun from February 21.

Top scorers from the last series -- Andrew Balbirnie of Ireland and Rahmat Shah (second highest scorer) of Afghanistan -- would add strength to their respective batting line-ups.
