Pakistan is currently on the Ireland-England tour, where the green shirts will clash with Ireland on May 11. This is the first-ever ICC recognised Test match for the Irish team.

By winning the second Test match against Southamptonshire, Pakistan has strengthened its preparations for the tour, which is considered to be a tough one for the national team.
