First ever Test: What does this mean to Ireland's cricketers?

Ireland players talk about their emotional journey to Test cricket status ahead of their first Test match against Pakistan.

“It’s been quite a while building up to this since it was announced,” said Ireland’s captain, William Porterfield. “I am sure there will be a lot of different emotions that will flow through everyone in the next 24 hours.”

The captain and his team are acutely aware that they are not just representing themselves, but all the Irish cricketers before them, the men who never had the chance to play a Test.
