BBC UK – Ireland have made two changes for the two-match Twenty20 international series against India in Dublin.

Summary

  • Josh Little is available once again and joins Andy McBrine in coming into the squad for the eagerly-anticipated games at Malahide.
  • “The selectors have chosen what we believe to be a strong, in-form squad for this format of the game that balances experience with youth,” said Andrew White, Chairman of National Men’s Selectors for Cricket Ireland.
  • Many of the squad will be either travelling to Sussex for the Ed Joyce Testimonial match on Sunday, or will be re-joining the senior squad from their English county sides.
  • “We will continue our approach of providing opportunities for a wider pool of players to gain experience in T20 cricket on the international stage,” White continued.
  • “With around 12 months to go to the World T20 Cup qualifiers, we are looking to build a competitive squad for that qualification stage and hopefully to propel us into the main tournament in 2020.”
