LAHORE: Ireland women’s cricket team will tour Pakistan for the first time in November to play three ODIs and as many T20Is against the hosts at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium, announced Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday. 

The ODI series will be held from November 4 to 9, as part of the ICC Women’s Championship 2022-25, while the T20I series will take place from November 12 to 16. All six matches will be played at the same venue.

The touring side will arrive in Lahore on October 29 and will engage in training sessions for four days prior to the ODI series.
