Ireland to make their Test debut against Pakistan in May next year

"If the ICC for example is coming up with a new league structure for test cricket then how does playing four-day tests fit into that and what are the advantages and disadvantages of four days, as opposed to five days, in that structure", he added.

Ireland became the 12th Test nation after they became a full time member with the ICC - alongside Afghanistan. Additionally, there is further information of the opposition and the venue.

Initially, a two-tier system of cricket league's had been proposed to ease the two sides into the Test cricket, to avoid a Bangladesh like disaster, but now it seems that Ireland has made a decision to jump in and play Pakistan as their first Test opponents.

Ireland played its first one-day global against England in 2006 and qualified for the 50-over Cricket World Cup the following year, beating Pakistan and Bangladesh. The discussions are slated to continue at ICC meetings in Auckland this week.

The International Cricket Council has confirmed Wednesday they're close to finalising details of Ireland's inaugural Test match.

Both Ireland and Afghanistan were awarded test status in June 2017. "We can hardly complain about compromising the traditional rhythms of Test cricket when Ireland hasn't played one yet", Deutrom was quoted as saying by Cricket Country last month".

According to a report published by the Independent in Ireland, a well placed source has revealed that Irish cricket officials will look to use the Auckland meeting to tie down Pakistan for the Malahide fixture. "In fact, one might even argue that the four-day experiment is more likely to suit us given our familiarity with the Intercontinental Cup".
