"We can hardly complain about compromising the traditional rhythms of Test cricket when Ireland hasn't played one yet", Deutrom told Cricket Country last month.

While some details remain to be fleshed out, including the points system and the full week-by-week Future Tours Programme, the first two-year Test championship comprising the game's top-nine teams will begin at the conclusion of the 2019 World Cup, with the top two teams by April 2021 to playoff in a championship final in England in June of that year.

Cricket Ireland has since been looking for suitable opponents for their opening clash in the five-day game.

The first ODI league, featuring the game's top 13 limited-overs nations, will commence in 2020-21, running for two years leading into the 2023 World Cup, before converting to a three-year league in each cycle beyond that.

Four-day Tests have also been allowed, although they will not count towards the championship as Richardson said such games are still at an experimental stage.

South Africa announced plans to play Zimbabwe in the first four-day Test starting on Boxing Day in Port Elizabeth, as part of their home summer calendar for the 2017-18 season.

Deutrom said a venue and exact date for the test had yet to be confirmed, but the country has played one-day internationals in both Belfast and Dublin.

Pakistan are now seventh in the Test rankings but were top of the pile as recently as past year.

However, Irish was concerned that countries trialing four-day Tests on a random basis may lead to confusion and uncertainty around the format. "If it was a rain-off yesterday, it would have been very disappointing so I am a fan of that".

Other than this, the match will also be on Ireland's home ground where they are particularly strong and have given Pakistan trouble in the past.

Pakistan are popular visitors to Ireland over the years with their fan support.

Besides, with Misbahul Haq's calming presence gone, Pakistan might look to take up the mantle of most unpredictable team once more, something equally foreboding as it is exciting.

Ireland skipper William Porterfield was not hesitant to mention the game either in his response to the announcement. "It'll be another step on what has been an incredible journey for our sport in a relatively short passage of time".
