Malahide is all set to host debut test of Ireland against Pakistan on Friday

Malahide is all set to host debut test of Ireland against Pakistan on Friday

Ireland captain William Porterfield hopes a combination of local conditions and English county cricket experience will work in his side's favour when they make their Test debut at home to Pakistan day after tomorrow.

Both the Ireland and Afghanistan teams were elevated to Test status last year, making them eligible for the five-day format.

But it is Ireland who will become the 11th men's cricket Test nation when they face Pakistan in a one-off match starting in Malahide, near Dublin, on Friday.

Ireland, however, did spring a huge surprise when they knocked Pakistan out of the 2007 World Cup in the Caribbean, although that was in a one-day international tournament.
