Dublin: Shane Getkate has replaced Mark Adair in the Ireland squad for the three-match Twenty20 series against Afghanistan in India next month.
Adair, troubled in recent times by an ankle injury, has been left out to "work on his fitness and conditioning", said a Cricket Ireland statement.
Getkate's inclusion in Ireland's only change from the squad which drew the recent T20 series against West Indies.
The series will take place in Greater Noida on 6, 8 and 10 March.
The games will form part of Ireland's preparations for the T20 World Cup in Australia in October.
Ireland produced a superb display to beat West Indies in the opening game of last month's T20 series in Grenada but after the second match in St Kitts and Nevis was rained off, the hosts earned a thumping win in the final contest.
Like Adair, Getkate was handed a full central contract by Cricket Ireland for the first time last month.
