There is speculation that Xi Jinping, 69, a close friend of Putin for 10 years, may try to start peace talks between Russia and Ukraine to end the conflict in Ukraine. Xi is also expected to hold a phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Earlier this week, with the help of China, an agreement was reached between Saudi Arabia and Iran in which both countries agreed to end their bitterness and diplomatic relations between them were restored. This visit of Chinfing is taking place after this development.

With India playing the ODI World Cup at home this year, it remains to be seen whether the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will take the risk of playing Hardik in a series that will be of little significance in terms of World Cup preparations. The series, however, is worth a lot to the Ireland Cricket Board as its broadcast revenue will improve their financial situation. The series will be held from August 18 to 23.
