England announce ODI against Ireland
Friday 22 October 2010
England will face Ireland in a one-day international in Dublin next August.
The two sides, who last met in Belfast last year with England three-run victors, will clash in Clontarf on August 25.
David Collier, the England and Wales Cricket Board chief executive, said: "We are pleased to have agreed this fixture with Cricket Ireland.
"Irish cricket continues to make excellent progress and I am sure that Ireland will provide tough opposition for our one-day squad ahead of The NatWest Series against India later in the summer."
Warren Deutrom, his Cricket Ireland counterpart, added: "Our matches against England are always special.
"We look forward to hosting household names including Andrew Strauss, Kevin Pietersen, Graeme Swann and not forgetting Eoin Morgan."
The sides are already due to clash in March in the World Cup.
