Stirling & Sorensen back for Dubai
07 Nov 2014 12:12
Paul Stirling and Max Sorensen return to the Ireland squad for their upcoming training camp in Dubai later this month as they continue their preparation for the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup.
-
Batsman Stirling and opening bowler Sorensen were both ruled out of Ireland’s recent World Cup acclimatisation tour of Australia and New Zealand through injury, but have been passed fit to link up with the squad which will depart for the training camp on 19 November.
-
While in Dubai Ireland will play two fixtures against a strong New Zealand A side which includes experienced internationals Daniel Vettori, Kyle Mills and Martin Guptill.
-
Injured pair Ed Joyce and Tim Murtagh have not been included in the squad to Dubai and will remain at home under the watchful eye of their respective counties - both are expected to be available for the tour in January.
-
Both Andrew White and Stuart Poynter also miss out from the squad which toured Australia and New Zealand last month, the former unavailable due to his finger injury sustained in Australia last month.
-
Meanwhile the Ireland selectors have also named a 21-strong winter training programme squad which will continue to work with Cricket Ireland coaching staff while the senior squad are away.
-
There are many new faces included in the squad including exciting pace-bowler Mark Adair who is currently on the books at Warwickshire, while there’s also a call up for YMCA and Leinster Lightning bowler Yaqoob Ali and promising Coleraine and North West Warriors spinner Rishi Chopra.
