Ireland cricket board was in negotiation with Pakistan cricket board for a tour but after recent terrorist attack on Karachi airport, Ireland has decided to hold back on its tour. Ireland had been willing to tour Pakistan after Bangladesh decided to withdraw from series in Pakistan last year.
Barry Chambers said “Cricket Ireland and the PCB were in advanced discussions to play three ODIs in Pakistan in September.” He also added, "Cricket Ireland is obviously very keen to secure as many fixtures as possible against Full Members, and these proposed games would have been very beneficial ahead of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup." These discussions has also involved contact with ICC, government and security advisers. However, after recent attack at Karachi airport, hopes of cricket revival in Pakistan has started fading away once again.
