DUBLIN:- Ireland cricket bosses have chosen Malahide near Dublin to host the country's inaugural Test match against Pakistan next year. The side, who have been playing one-day internationals since 2006, were handed Test status in June, along with Afghanistan, and will make their debut in the five-day format in the May 11-15 match. "We are delighted that Malahide has agreed to host this historic game against Pakistan," Cricket Ireland chief executive Warren Deutrom said. "Even in its short history of hosting our matches, the club has already given us some wonderful memories, and we trust that May 11 and its ensuing days will provide many more."–AFP
