Ireland Named 14-Man Squad for Historic England Series in 2017

Ireland Named 14-Man Squad for Historic England Series in 2017

Kevin O’Brien and Paul Stirling have been declared fit to face England in two ODIs at Bristol and Lord’s next month and have been named in a 14-man Ireland squad for the “historic” games on May 5 and May 7.

O’Brien who famously scored the fastest century in World Cup history against England in 2011, has recovered from a hamstring injury.

Ireland fans will be hoping that May 7th 2017 will be the latest cricket chapter written into the nation’s cricketing history.

Kevin O’Brien and William Porterfield have both played for Gloucestershire, and the skipper Porterfield hopes that there will be a sizeable support for the Boys In Green at both venues.
