O'Brien: England are full of talent
18 Apr 2015 09:09
England might not select their top players against Ireland but Kevin O’Brien says that the sheer size of their talent pool means a tough task lies ahead in next month’s ODI.
-
Ireland host the England in Malahide on 8 May, just three days after the Test side return from a five-match tour of the West Indies.
-
It will be the side’s first meeting since the 2013 One Day International at the same venue, a match that the visitors won by six wickets, helped by a century from Dubliner Eoin Morgan.
-
With the tour in the Caribbean and many players unavailable due to club commitments, England will be unable to send a full-strength side.
-
“Whatever team they pick it’s going to be a very talented squad,” O’Brien told RTÉ Sport.
-
“You’re going to have some extremely good county players who are knocking on the door of the full England side. I think whoever comes into the team is going to have something to prove.
-
“Following England’s relatively poor World Cup campaign, I think everyone starts from scratch. Whoever plays against us is going to look to it as an opportunity to put their name in the hat.
-
“It promises to be another great day.”
