Afghanistan and Ireland granted Test status

Afghanistan and Ireland have become the 11th and 12th Full Members and have been given Test status. 

They have now become Test-playing nations, which marks a historic day. 

Their boards had applied to the ICC to have their status upgraded from Associates to Full Members. 

When this was put to vote at an ICC meeting, it was unanimously supported.

On an historic day for @Irelandcricket congratulations also to @ACBofficials on their elevation to Full Membership! #IrelandFullMember

Massive thank you to everyone who has played their part in making the dream of Full Membership of @ICC a reality.

Both the teams have emerged as powerhouses over the last few years and they truly deserve to be given Test status.
