First Irish test againt England, and only their third overall. Its been a long time coming. An ENgland v Afghanistan might be interesting, but seriously playing Pakistan v England or NZ for the 400th time won't be a good post WC hangover cure.

Plus arranging even a couple of tests against established nations off the cuff is problematic. Nobody wants to be the appitizer to the Ashes, I know Pakistan and or NZ won't want to be, and thats before dealing with the complicated issue of sponsorship and broadcast rights.
