The three matches will be played on May 10, 12 and 14 at the Clontarf Cricket Club in Dublin. After the series, Pakistan will fly to England for four T20Is from May 22 to 30 before heading to the 2024 T20 World Cup in the United States and the Caribbean.

Haris Rauf has made a comeback after spending the entire New Zealand series on the sidelines due to a shoulder injury. Hassan Ali has also returned. Usama Mir and Zaman Khan, both of whom were part of the squad for the New Zealand series, have been dropped. Meanwhile, Salman Ali Agha, who was in the reserves in the same home series, has found a spot.

While Azam Khan was forced out of the series against New Zealand due to discomfort in his right leg, Mohammad Rizwan was ruled out of the remaining two matches following a hamstring injury suffered during the third match.

Babar Azam, who was reinstated as Pakistan’s white-ball captain, will continue to lead the side. There have been some recent concerns over the visa of Mohammad Amir, who has played in Ireland before.

 

Meanwhile, Ireland have announced a 14-member squad led by Paul Stirling for the three T20Is and the subsequent tri-series involving the Netherlands and Scotland. They have plenty of experience with veterans like Andrew Balbarnie, Harry Tector, George Dockrell and Mark Adair, among others in the mix.

The same players will play in the 2024 T20 World Cup, with Josh Little as the only addition.
