Cricket Ireland will get lots of Money good for them they deserve it and some extra pressure on India again


MUMBAI (Reuters) - Ireland will host one-day matches against India and South Africa next month, the Irish Cricket Union said.


Associate side Ireland will face India on June 23 and South Africa the following day ahead of a three-match, one-day international series between the two test-playing nations in Belfast.


Ireland's upset World Cup win over Bangladesh last month earned them entry into the main International Cricket Council one-day ranking list. The World Cup debutants also scored a shock win over Pakistan to knock them out in the first round.


"The Irish Cricket Union (ICU) is proud that two such great cricketing nations as India and South Africa are coming to Ireland to play each other and against Ireland," ICU chief executive Warren Deutrom told the ICU Web site.


"Following last year's hugely successful match at Stormont between Ireland and England, the ICU is delighted that top-class cricket continues to come to Ireland, in the first-ever matches between full test cricket nations here.


"These matches will not only continue to put Irish cricket on the map after the success of the Ireland team at the cricket World Cup, but should provide a real financial impetus to our objectives for the future of the game." The three-match series between India and South Africa will take place on June 26, June 29 and July 1.
India then head to England in July for three tests and seven one-day internationals

I can't believe that winning one game can gave so much impact and long-lasting effect on some people :).

We are still reaping the benefits of the Australia win. Winning against India in a WC would not end so soon. :)

At least for the next 4 years we would keep on saying in WCs
we are 1-0 against India.

And for now: we are 2-1 in the last three games against India. And how long India has been playing? :)

That was actually the first time I heard the match being called an "upset"... Great to see them get more matches. They deserve it...

Eh donno about us..we might win/loose against INDIA..but trust me ..INDIA WILL SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP AWAY IRELAND ..big time..whereever they play'em.. India = huge minnow bashers.
Ireland might have defeated Pakistan & Bangladesh..but they would still loose a 5 match ODI series anywhere..atleast 3-2 against Zimbabwe.

Although Kenya is a great team. People like Dravid bowled in that match. It was actually a pretty big thing. They didnt take Kenya seriously and it came back to bite them somewhere they would want to be bitten in..
