Ireland set for historic Lord’s Test against England
Ireland’s dream run to become a fully-fledged cricketing nation will see a big step forward when they play their first Test against England at Lord’s. The Irish side made their Test debut last year but suffered a final day defeat to Pakistan despite a creditable display. They were well beaten by Afghanistan after that. Ireland’s ODI exploits are well known after beating Pakistan (2007) & England (2011) at World Cups.
