players will be staying as reserved players.
The squad selected covers all possibilities
we have picked players that are in clearcontroversy to play, but also players that will help our batsmenfix for the
type of hostility we’ll be fronting,” said Andrew White, chief selector of the team.
England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have entitled all-rounder Moeen Ali as vice-captain for their three-match
ODI series against Ireland which initiates on Thursday 30 July.
The team will be commanded by
Captain Eoin Morgan, but his typicalsecond-in-command Jos Buttler will not play a share in the series due to his
involvement in the continuing Test series against West Indies – the teams are being set asidedistinct as part of
the bio-security set of rules for both series.
As part of his responsibilities,
Moeen will head one side through the two intra-squad training matches England are planned to play before
identifying their final team for the series.
These warm-up matches will be live-streamed by the ECB on their weblink on Tuesday 21 July and Friday 24 July,
while an England Lions v Ireland game on Sunday 26 July.
We’re pleased that our best wicket-taker in 2019, Mark Adair, proceeds after getting better from ankle surgery.
Despite the fact that a number of players like Stuart Thompson and Shane Getkate are ill-fated to not to travel,
the skill that will be added on this trip by a number of the fresher players will be precious in their progress.
“David Delany was not well thought-out for choicethis time.
The consequences of his prior surgery, and the
succeedingprolonged lockdown era, we were not completelyself-assured that he has had the time to complete
the essentialvolume of research in order to carefully play in these contests.”
Ireland are planned to play two preparation matches beforehand the One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against
England on 30 July, 1 and 4 August.
Andrew Balbirnie, Captain of Ireland Team, said, “Playing International Cricket is a huge honour.
Not only do we have that to look forward to now but we’ll be taking on the world champions in their own backyard.
That is the ultimate challenge and we’ll be ready.”
