Ireland became the 12th Test nation after they became a full time member with the ICC - alongside Afghanistan.
Ireland played its first one-day worldwide against England in 2006 and qualified for the 50-over Cricket World Cup the following year, beating Pakistan and Bangladesh.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported that plans for a nine-nation Test championship were now well advanced and the ICC was set to give the concept a green light on Friday at a meeting in Auckland.

It's going to be a bit special, and it's always great to be a part of history.
While the news is certainly a major moment for Ireland, it will be quite significant for Pakistan as well.
