Now we go out there to play in the first Test for Ireland.

One of the few green-tinged pitches in the West Indies, and thereby reminiscent of surfaces at home in Ireland, was matched by fans wearing Irish green shirts in a jubilant crowd at Kingston's Sabina Park. However, if Ireland does the same then it will be the first incident after 141 years. Although no one knew it at the time, Ireland's win perversely damaged the cause of aspiring cricket nations.

"In my career personally, we have gone from not having ODI status to having ODI status and everything else, now we'll be going out there and playing the first Test match for Ireland", said the skipper.

After years of wait, Ireland steps into the longer format of the game with the one-off Test, and speaking to scribes at the Malahide earlier, Cricket Ireland's chief executive, Warren Deutrom, had indicated that it is open to touring Pakistan.

Ireland will be without seamer Nathan Smith after he 22-year-old was ruled out with a side strain and replaced in the squad by Craig Young.

"We want our level of competitiveness to be a habit, it's good to arrive at the end with everything solved but I want it to be an acquired habit".

They made an even bigger global splash when they knocked Pakistan out of the 2007 one-day worldwide World Cup tournament with a stunning St Patrick's Day win at Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica. "But we've as much chance as anyone if we do the basics right, in our own conditions we will give ourselves a very good chance", he added.

"Are we favourites? No. There is a lot of experience in our line-up, exciting youth as well, so I don't see any reason why (we can't win)". From here on, more people will pick up the game and more kids will play the game as well.

Ireland knockout Pakistan from the World Cup 2007 with their incredible victory.

Ireland were soon 15 for two before an innings of 72 from Niall O'Brien, also in the Test squad, got them back on track before now-retired captain Trent Johnston won the match with a six off Azhar Mahmood.

It's a day they thought would never come, but they all deserve their place on the biggest stage.
