RSA Insurance One Day International Series Ireland v Sri Lanka
After beating the West Indies in Jamaica in February, the Boys in Green will be looking for another famous scalp when they take on the newly-crowned World T20 champions in the 50-over RSA Insurance Series on May 6 and 8 at Clontarf Cricket Club in North Dublin.
And for local fans it will be a fantastic first chance to see some of the superstars of the world game in Lasith Malinga, Kumar Sangakkara, Tillakaratne Dilshan and Mahela Jayawardene after their stunning win over India in Dhaka yesterday in the ICC World T20 final.
Cricket fans turned out in their droves last summer with superb crowds at the marquee Irish fixtures in 2013. In May, Clontarf was the scene of two epic battles with Pakistan that resulted in a tie and the narrowest of wins for the visitors while Dublin also hosted an RSA Challenge match against England in front of a record-breaking crowd of 10,000 at Malahide on that glorious day in September.
Tickets for the matches are still available via www.cricketireland.ie and Ticketmaster outlets nationwide. Fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance as the second Pakistan fixture sold out at the same venue last year.
There are also considerable discounts available for cricket clubs and schools via bulk ticket sales. For further details please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (00353) 01-8947914
