Ireland will host an ODI tri-series also involving West Indies and Bangladesh next summer. The tournament, which will begin on May 5, will see the teams play each other twice with the top two sides playing the final on May 17.
The tri-series, which begins two days after Ireland are scheduled to play an ODI against England in Malahide, adds to a busy home summer for Ireland that will feature 16 international matches. Apart from the tri-series and the England ODI, Ireland are set to meet Afghanistan in two ODIs, and Zimbabwe in three ODIs and three T20Is. All these matches will be played across four international venues in the country, with Malahide hosting five, Clontarf three, Stormont five and Bready three.
All this limited-overs action will serve as a curtain-raiser to the main event; Ireland first ever Test match against England, at Lord’s. After being granted Test status in 2017, Ireland hosted Pakistan for a one-off Test in May 2018, which the visitors won by five-wickets in Malahide. Ireland are also set to play their first-ever away Test match in March 2019, against fellow Test newbies Afghanistan.
