West Indies and Bangladesh will be touring Ireland for an ODI Tri-series in May 2019, ahead of their participation in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup in England and Wales.
In what will be a busy summer schedule for Ireland at home, they will take on both their opponents shortly after hosting England for a solitary ODI on 03rd May 2019 in Malahide. Each nation will play each other in a single round-robin group phase before the top 2 sides meet in the final to determine the winner of the Tri-series.
Warren Deutrom, Chief Executive of Cricket Ireland, said on their website: “While 2018 was a breakthrough year in many ways for Irish cricket, 2019 is set to be another momentous year for our sport. Next season we will host five Full Member nations – with a number of the teams having not played here for many years. Zimbabwe’s last match in Ireland, for instance, was in 2003, while a senior West Indies side hasn’t been seen in on-field action in Ireland since 2007.”
“The international fixtures will begin with England on May 3rd at Malahide, before a one-day international Tri-Series between Ireland, Bangladesh and West Indies to be played across Malahide and Clontarf. Then we move to play a two-match one-day series against Afghanistan at Stormont, before a six-match white-ball series against Zimbabwe to be played at Stormont and Bready.”
