Cricket Ireland has announced a 14-player squad for Ireland Men's T20 International series against India at Malahide on 26 & 28 June.
The squad includes call-ups for two of the North West Warriors squad - top-order batter Stephen Doheny and pace bowler Conor Olphert. Both players were recently handed retainer contracts by Cricket Ireland.
Doheny, 23, plays his club cricket with Merrion and is the current leading run-scorer in the inter-provincial T20 Trophy competition with 158 runs at an average of 52.67.
Olphert, 25, plays for Bready, and while he made his List A debut in 2020, the current season has been his most eye-catching. The pace bowler, renowned for his pace and bounce, was taken as a net bowler on Ireland's tour to the UAE on early 2021. He has claimed six wickets at 19.17 in the inter-pro T20 Trophy so far and has also bagged six wickets in the 50-over competition.
Ireland Men’s T20I squad for India series:
Andrew Balbirnie (capt), Mark Adair, Curtis Campher, Gareth Delany, George Dockrell, Stephen Doheny, Josh Little, Andrew McBrine, Barry McCarthy, Conor Olphert, Paul Stirling, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, Craig Young.
