Selectors show faith in current Ireland squad as no changes made for remainder of ODI Tri-Series
May 10th 2019 | International
DUBLIN – Selectors have named an unchanged 14-man men’s international squad for the remaining matches in the current Walton ODI Tri-Series.
The squad covers the following matches:
• Ireland v West Indies one-day international (11 May 2019)
• Ireland v Bangladesh one-day international (15 May 2019)
• ODI Tri-Series Final (17 May 2019) – if Ireland qualify
Andrew White, Chair of National Men’s Selectors, said:
“While it was unfortunate yesterday’s game was rained off, we have just had the two games so far (against England and West Indies) and selectors want to give this current 14-man squad the chance to play itself back into the current series and make a bid for the final on Friday.”
“While there were a number of good performances during the Wolves game against Bangladesh last weekend, we believe the current squad deserves the opportunity to contest the remainder of the Series.”
Ireland Men’s squad
William Porterfield (captain), Mark Adair, Andrew Balbirnie, George Dockrell, Josh Little, Andrew McBrine, Barry McCarthy, James McCollum, Tim Murtagh, Kevin O’Brien, Boyd Rankin, Paul Stirling, Lorcan Tucker, Gary Wilson.
