The two-match T20I series between Pakistan and Ireland has been postponed due to some scheduling conflicts. The series was scheduled to be played in England, but ECB has informed both the countries that it will not be possible for them to host the series.
In June the final of World Test Championship is to be played between India and New Zealand plus English women are also scheduled to play in June. On the other hand, Pakistani players would also be unavailable due to the resumption of PSL 6 in June.
The series between Pakistan and Ireland was originally scheduled to be played in 2020, but it was postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic. Irish Cricket has been affected very deeply due to the pandemic as most of the international fixtures of Ireland were either postponed or cancelled.
Cricket Ireland performance director Richard Holsworth said that it is shame that the series against Pakistan has been postponed and that too in the T20I World Cup year. He said that we have still got three T20I series lined up before the World Cup. Ireland is scheduled to play against South Africa and Zimbabwe in July and August respectively. Richard Holsworth added that we are trying to reschedule the Pakistan series.
Pakistan will play four T20I series before the World Cup including the 4-match series against South Africa which will start from today.
