In view of the ICC T20 Men’s World Cup in June, for which the three countries have qualified, Ireland, Scotland and the Netherlands will play a T20I Tri-Series in the Netherlands in May. The participating countries play each other twice.

The place of action is VRA in Amstelveen. The playing dates are May 18 to 24, 2024. All matches will be livestreamed with six cameras by the European Cricket Network (ECN).

Ireland has already participated in the ICC T20 Men’s World Cup seven times. It reached the Super-8 in 2009 and the Super-12 in 2022. Scotland’s best performance was reaching the Super-12 in 2021.
