Ireland Cricket announces 15 member squad for the One Day Internationals tour to England ahead of World Cup.
Ireland Cricket Squad announcement
Andrew White, Ireland Cricket selector, said:
“While the squad has an overall familiar shape, there are several important changes we are going to look at. The key changes are at the top of the order where Andrew Balbirnie will open with Paul Stirling. The pair have a great understanding. And we believe they can develop into a longer-term opening option in the 50-over game.”
Andrew White, the selector of Ireland Cricket team further said that
“Along with this, Curtis Campher will make the move to number 3, where we believe he has the technique and aptitude to succeed in the role. He plays pace as well as anyone in the squad, and whilst he has been a mainstay of our middle order for a few years now, we believe he has the capability to batter higher up the order and have a really positive impact.
“We see this series as important in the development and evolution of our one-day squad. And the players are certainly looking forward to locking horns with England for the first time in ODIs since 2020.”. Said Ireland Cricket team selector
The squad is:
- Paul Stirling (capt), Mark Adair, Andrew Balbirnie, Curtis Campher, Gareth Delany, George Dockrell, Graham Hume, Josh Little, Andy McBrine, Barry McCarthy, Neil Rock, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, Theo van Woerkom, Craig Young.
