Pakistan's tour of Ireland postponed due to virus outbreak

The two-T20I series between Pakistan and Ireland has been postponed with the mutual consent of the two cricket boards owing to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The matches were scheduled to take place on July 12 and 14 with both games set to be staged in Dublin.

The decision has been taken after the Ireland Government announced that matches can be held behind closed doors only after August 10. During that period, Pakistan is expected to be engaged in a tour of England comprising of three Tests and three T20Is.

“It is sad that due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, we have to postpone our tour to Ireland. We were looking forward to returning to the venue, where we featured against Ireland in their inaugural Test in 2018, and country where our players have always been supported and admired by the friendly and knowledgeable fans,” said PCB CEO Wasim Khan.
