Ireland Wolves will take on the Northern Knights in Belfast at the start of May.

The three-day fixture is scheduled to take place at Stormont from May 1 to 3, coinciding with the interpro game at Oakhill between Leinster Lightning and NW Warriors on the same days.

The match will ensure players get valuable time in the middle ahead of the first men's Test match at Malahide the following week.

Ireland Wolves will once again be playing matches in England similar to their 2017 pre-season mini tour, and Bangladesh A are also here from August 1-17 on an 8-match tour, with five 50-over games followed by three T20 clashes.

There are also plans for an overseas tour towards the end of the year.
