March 29: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday announced the schedule for Pakistan’s tour of Ireland for a three-match T20I series. The matches, scheduled for May 10, 12 and 14, will take place on Castle Avenue in Dublin.

The series is part of Pakistan’s 12-match preparation for the T20 World Cup in the United States and West Indies. Before Pakistan leaves for Ireland, New Zealand arrives in Pakistan in April to play five T20Is, the first of which will take place on April 18.

The final match will take place on April 27. Next, Pakistan will embark on a four-T20I tour of England, which begins on May 22.

Pakistan’s last visit to Ireland was in the hosts’ inaugural Test match in 2018. It was also the last time the two teams faced each other in various formats.

Pakistan were scheduled to face Ireland in two T20Is in Dublin in July 2020, but they were postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Ireland, meanwhile, will take part in the T20Is against Pakistan after losing the ODI and T20I series to Afghanistan in the United Arab Emirates earlier this month, although they claimed a historic maiden Test victory in Abu Dhabi to start the tour.

Pakistan and Ireland are gearing up for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in June and will meet on June 16 in the first group stage of the tournament.
