Netherlands and Ireland to Host Pakistan in 2020

It will be the first time they will host the Pakistan Cricket Team

The Netherlands is scheduled to host Pakistan next year. They will play three One Day International (ODI) matches from July 4 to 9. After the Netherlands, Pakistan will tour Ireland to play two Twenty20 International (T20I) matches. They are also slated to play three World Test Championship matches in England from July 30 to August 20.

The Pakistan Cricket Board spokesperson spoke about next year’s event. ‘We have a long and strong relationship with KNCB (Netherlands Cricket Board) and Ireland Cricket and I think it's important that we provide these countries much-needed opportunity to compete against Full Members’, he said. ‘We had an empty window and there isn't a better way to support them in their growth by playing them more frequently. The PCB has a long history of helping and encouraging associate members and the tour to the Netherlands is part of that tradition’.

‘On our previous trips, we have received tremendous public support who have thronged the stadia to not only watch cricket but also appreciate and encourage the players. I am confident the upcoming tours will further strengthen the bonding and service the purpose’, he continued.

Ireland and Pakistan faced in a World Cup game in 2007. Pakistan also toured Ireland where the latter was invited to play in their home country. However, Ireland opted out due to a terrorist attack at the Karachi airport.
