Pakistan cricket team would be a part of something historic as they would be playing against Ireland, in what would be the Irish inaugural Test match next May.
“It’s fantastic news for Irish cricket. It’s going to be a bit special and it’s always great to be a part of history.”
“We are excited to welcome Pakistan to Ireland for our inaugural Test match next year,” CEO Warren Deutrom said, quoted ITV.
Earlier, Ireland and Afghanistan were granted Test status by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in June.
“It has been our wish to make our Test debut in front of our own fans within 12 months of becoming a Test nation, and against a big team, so I’m delighted.
“There is a lot of work to do from now to ensure that it will be an occasion to remember but we, and I’m sure our players and fans, can’t wait to rise to it,” Deutrom added.
The match is scheduled to be played in Ireland.
