News by “Sports Reporter”

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced that the Ireland men’s cricket team will embark on a tour of Pakistan in August-September next year for a Test series, marking a significant shift from their original plans. Initially slated for three ODIs and as many T20Is in September and October of 2025, the Irish team will now engage in a Test series during the specified period.

The confirmation of Ireland’s tour to Pakistan follows a meeting between PCB chairman Mohsin Naqvi and Cricket Ireland Chairman Brian MacNeice in Dublin. During the meeting, MacNeice extended a warm welcome to Naqvi and expressed gratitude for his visit, presenting him with a souvenir shirt and cap of the Irish team. Discussions also encompassed the possibility of arranging a series between the women’s cricket teams of both nations.

Chairman MacNeice also commended Pakistan’s hosting of the ICC Champions Trophy 2025, citing the nation’s track record of providing excellent security for international tournaments. Naqvi reciprocated the appreciation, lauding Cricket Ireland for their hospitality during Pakistan’s ongoing tour and assuring foolproof arrangements for all participating teams in the upcoming Champions Trophy.

Currently, Pakistan and Ireland are engaged in a three-match series, tied at 1-1 with one game remaining, as part of the buildup to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. The anticipation builds as the two teams are set to clash in the mega event on June 16 at Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill.
