Cricket Ireland have confirmed a one-day international series against Sri Lanka and Pakistan for next summer in Malahide.

The North Dublin venue, which has seen sell-out crowds for England ODIs in 2013 and 2015, will host Sri Lanka on Thursday June 16 and Saturday June 18, before Pakistan are the visitors on Thursday August 18 and Saturday August 20.

While Ireland will be looking for a first victory over Sri Lanka, the matches against Pakistan will revive memories of that famous World Cup victory in 2007 and a number of epic encounters since, including a tied match at Clontarf in 2013.

"It's shaping up to be a fantastic year both at home and abroad because we've also got ODIs arranged in South Africa against their side and Australia," said Ireland opening bowler Craig Young.

"Irish supporters are among the most passionate in world cricket, and there's sure to be a superb atmosphere at Malahide because Sri Lanka and Pakistan always have a big following themselves for matches in the area.

"With home conditions on our side we would be very hopeful of sending Irish fans home with a smile on their faces. A first win over a Test-playing side in Dublin is long overdue. We came close to beating Pakistan last time there with one game tied and the other a real nail-biter."

'Early Bird' tickets are available priced at €20 for adults, €16 for Senior Citizens, while entry for Under 16's will cost just €8.

There are family deals available at €49 (2 adults, 2 children) while two match packages are on sale for €35 (adults),  €28 (Senior Citizens), €12 (Under 16's), and €89 (family).

Tickets will go on sale Thursday morning.
