DUBLIN – Cricket Ireland has welcomed an agreement with the Pakistan Cricket Board that will see Ireland Men tour Pakistan for the first time in 2025.

Cricket Ireland’s Chair, Brian MacNeice, met yesterday with PCB Chair, Mohsin Naqvi, and agreed on the tour provisionally set for August/September.

Brian MacNeice said:

“We are delighted to have welcomed Chairman Naqvi to Dublin and we had a very productive meeting. The presence of the PCB chairman in Ireland was very much appreciated and is a strong indicator of the excellent relationship between the two boards.

“Discussions were wide-ranging and included exploring men’s, women’s, and Wolves-level fixtures in the future. I’m very pleased that we were able to agree on a men’s tour next year – this will be yet another historic first, coming after the tour to Pakistan by our senior women in 2022.

“We were also briefed on developments in relation to the Pakistan Super League and potential opportunities for Irish players in PSL franchises.

“The Pakistan squad have been excellent ambassadors for their country over the last week and have been very generous in their interactions with fans throughout their time in Ireland. We very much look forward to the deciding game in the series tomorrow and of course our meeting in the T20 World Cup next month.

“The cricketing friendship between Ireland and Pakistan runs very deep – indeed, the first meeting between the two sides was in 1962 here in Dublin, and Pakistan has been our opponent for both our inaugural women’s and men’s Test matches.

“We look forward to this auspicious tour and thank Chairman Naqvi and the PCB for their ongoing friendship and support.”

Pakistan Men are currently touring Ireland, with a three-match T20I series level at 1-1 with the last game scheduled for May 14 at Clontarf Cricket Club Ground, Dublin.
