Originally, Ireland was scheduled to play a Test match along with two ODI matches. In March 2023, following a request from Sri Lanka Cricket, the schedule was changed to include a second Test instead of the two ODI matches.

The five-day matches will also be important for Ireland, who have played just three Test matches in total over the last six years.

Ireland announces the Test squad for the Sri Lanka tour where Paul Stirling is included for the second Test alone. National Men’s Selector at Cricket Ireland, said: “Paul was originally set to join the squad in Sri Lanka for the ODI series that was originally planned.

However, with those fixtures now converted to a Test match, and the scheduled Bangladesh T20I series in Ireland postponed, he will now have a greater focus on red-ball cricket and will join the Test squad for that second Test.”
