Cricket Ireland announced that tickets have gone on sale for the one-off one day international (ODI) between Ireland and England at Malahide on 3 May 2019.
Warren Deutrom, Chief Executive of Cricket Ireland, said:
“The clash with England heralds the start of a busy home season of men’s cricket in 2019, with numerous Full Member nations visiting our shores. This encounter comes almost four years to the day that England appeared in a match in Ireland, so this is set to be a highly sought after ticket for Irish cricket fans.”
“England is currently the number one ODI side in the world, and set to host the 2019 Cricket World Cup later in the summer, so they will be eyeing this match as a key part of their preparations for the World Cup.”
“It is a nice symmetry that England book-ends our international men’s summer, with this ODI starting our home summer campaign, and the Lord’s test match against England completing our international summer fixtures.”
The match also comes nearly two years from the last time these two sides met in the ODI format, when Ireland played a two-match series at Bristol and Lord’s in front of large crowds.
