The Irish were scheduled Namibia in a four-day match in Belfast

Ireland have confirmed that their two scheduled one-day matches against Namibia will go ahead as planned on 4 and 5 July at Stormont.

The Intercontinental Cup tie between the sides, which was due to take place this week, had to be postponed because some members of the Namibian squad had problems securing visas.

The difficulties appear to have been ironed out and Namibia should arrive in Belfast on Saturday.

The Irish squad will remain unchanged.

Former Irish captain Trent Johnston described the postponement of the Intercontinental Cup game as a "disgrace".

Johnston made the comments on Twitterexternal-link.

Officials have yet to decide what will happen to the Intercontinental Cup fixture.
