Ireland to play Pakistan in first men's Test match in May

Pakistan were top of the Test match rankings as recently as last year before slipping back after the retirement of captain Misbah-ul-Haq and senior batsman Younus Khan.

 

Ireland's first men's Test match will be on home soil against Pakistan in May 2018, with the exact dates and venue still to be revealed.

An agreement between the two countries was reached during the International Cricket Council meeting in Auckland.

Ireland and Afghanistan were given Test status in June when they became the 11th and 12th full members of the ICC.

Cricket Ireland has since been looking for suitable opponents for an historic first match.

"We are excited to welcome Pakistan to Ireland for our inaugural Test match next year," said Ireland CEO Warren Deutrom.

"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."

Pakistan were top of the Test match rankings as recently as last year before slipping back after the retirement of captain Misbah-ul-Haq and senior batsman Younus Khan.

"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.

"We would like to thank the Pakistan Cricket Board most sincerely for agreeing to be our first opponent in Test cricket - the Pakistan team has been a regular visitor to our shores in recent years, and their agreement to be our opponent on this important occasion for Irish cricket is further evidence of their terrific support."
