Ireland and Afghanistan to be awarded Test status in 2019?

So that makes that ongoing tournament to decide which associate becomes a test nation kinda like the parent who says you won't get dessert unless you finish your chores but let's you have it anyway even if you don't get them done

All of Ireland's better players are over the hill now - they'll be well down the other side by then, but on the other hand the Afghans will, hopefully, fully justify their elevation

I don't know enough about this I guess, but do the Irish classify as overseas players for the English county sides? Surely that would be hold them in good stead if they have a few playing in those ranks
