Ireland have announced they will play five one-day internationals against Afghanistan at Stormont this summer.
Afghanistan, who caused England fleeting consternation in an ICC World Twenty20 group match last month and also beat subsequent tournament winners West Indies, will be in action against Ireland between July 10 and 19.
For the hosts, who also face Sri Lanka and Pakistan this summer, it will be a first ever five-match series.
Ireland just failed to qualify from Pool B at the World Cup last year, winning three of their games against the West Indies, UAE and Zimbabwe.
