Ireland played their first one-day global against England in 2006 and qualified for the World Cup the following year, where they beat Pakistan and Bangladesh.

ICC said in a media release on Tuesday that Pakistan will play a "red ball" match against Ireland in April before their two-Test tour of England in 2018.

Cricket has been played in Ireland for almost 200 years, but it was not until 1969 that they made the rest of the world game take true notice when they bowled out the West Indies for just 25 at Sion Mills in a televised match.
