The umpiring team for next month's Test match at Malahide has been confirmed.

Local umpires Alan Neill and Mark Hawthorne are both included in a real boost for the NIACUS.

Also  named are English officials Nigel Llong and Richard Illingworth, who were embroiled in the turbulent series between Australia and South Africa. 

That featured the now notorious 'sandpaper-gate' which saw Cricket Australia had bans to skipper Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft.

Former England Test match player Chris Broad is the match referee.

The match will be shown on Sky Sports across Ireland and the UK.

Cricket Ireland CEO last week told the Irish Times podcast that they had secured 1.8 million Euros for rights through agents Pitch International for this Test match plus the two T20I's against India in June.

The bulk of that income is believed to be for the India matches, with Deutrom confirming that the Test match would be a loss-making venture.

Tickets for the first three days of the match were selling well.

A capacity of just over 8500 will be in place for the India matches.
