Ireland Cricket: a team with grand ambitions
Although cricket has been played in Ireland for a long time, the Emerald Isle has only recently been recognised for the sport with the ascension of Ireland Cricket to international Test status. As the sport grows in popularity and more talented players appear, there are plenty of exciting events ahead for this unsung side. Support them at an upcoming match with Ireland Cricket tickets now available to buy or sell on StubHub.
The meteoric rise of Ireland Cricket
Cricket has been played in Ireland since the early 19th century, with the national team touring countries like the USA and Canada and establishing an ongoing rivalry with the Scotland national cricket team. Yet despite this long history, the One Day International debut for Ireland Cricket didn't come until 2006, when they played (and lost to) England Cricket in a thrilling match. A full house greeted them at this event held in Stormont, Belfast, as it has done at many matches since. Cricket is growing in popularity in Ireland, helped partly by factors such as the team's success in the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup. In only their second match they beat Pakistan Cricket, then fourth best team in the world, to advance to the Super 8 stages in which they were unfortunately knocked out. New heroes in their country, the Ireland Cricket team (which represents the entire island) continued to rise rapidly through the ranks of international cricket. By 2018 they were ranked 12th in the world in ODIs, and in 2017 were granted Test status along with the Afghanistan National Cricket Team. With ever more matches on the schedule, StubHub can offer a broad range of Ireland Cricket tickets to suit every taste and budget.
Watch exciting Ireland Cricket fixtures
Ireland Cricket fixtures include Test, ODI and T20I matches, with their first-ever Test having been held at The Village, Dublin in May 2018. Though they lost to Pakistan, the team was praised highly by pundits and Kevin O'Brien was named player of the match for his incredible 158 runs. O'Brien was also proud to hold the record for the most number of wickets in ODIs - by 2017, he was well ahead of the other players with a total of 112. Being granted Test status means that it is less likely for Ireland Cricket's best players to choose to move to the English team in order to play Test matches - a problem that had previously afflicted the country, but not dampened its citizens' enthusiasm for the sport. With four international grounds to choose from for home matches and an ever-increasing number of away engagements, the Ireland Cricket team is easier to catch and more exciting to support than ever before.
