DUBLIN: The International Cricket Council has confirmed Wednesday they’re close to finalising details of Ireland’s inaugural Test match.
The first-ever match in Ireland’s history is “likely” to be staged in Dublin against Pakistan next year, the cricket.com.au quoted an ICC spokesperson as saying.
It is understood that talks between Ireland and Pakistan have been ongoing over the Test match schedule to be played in late April or early May.
The ICC, in a media release on Tuesday, said that Pakistan will play a “red ball” match against Ireland in April ahead of their two-Test tour of England next year.
A spokesperson for Cricket Ireland declined to confirm whether the Test has been locked in.
