Squad announced for Ireland Men’s T20Is against New Zealand at Stormont

The selectors have kept faith with the T20I squad that took on India last week

DUBLIN – Cricket Ireland has today announced a 14-player squad for Ireland Men’s T20 International series against New Zealand to be played at Stormont from 18-22 July 2022.

The three-match series will follow a three-match ODI series at Malahide (ODI squad already announced).

Selectors have kept faith with the T20I squad that faced India in a two-match series last week.

Ireland Men’s ODI squad for New Zealand series (previously announced)
Andrew Balbirnie (Captain), Mark Adair, Curtis Campher, Gareth Delany, George Dockrell, Stephen Doheny, Graham Hume, Josh Little, Andrew McBrine, Simi Singh, Paul Stirling, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, Craig Young.



Andrew White, Chair of National Men’s Selectors, said:

“Naturally, the Selectors are backing the players that performed well against India – the high standards we sought were delivered upon, and we hope the squad can put in similar performances against New Zealand. The second T20I against India was a superb spectacle for the fans, but I know the coaching staff and players were gutted not to get across the line.

“The players should take great confidence from the past week, and we hope that this can lead to a greater consistency in performances. It would be fantastic to see the sporting public - young and not-so-young - come out in their numbers and support the team at Stormont.”
