Ireland cricket board has announced final squad for ICC world cup 2015. William Porterfield will be leading Irish team in 11th edition of cricket world cup. Niall O’Brien and Gary Wilson are the wicket-keepers included in Ireland squad for 2015 world cup.
Captain Porterfield said, “It’s fantastic to be leading Ireland in another global tournament. We’ve produced some wonderful performances over the years in World Cups, and there’s no reason why we can’t claim further successes in Australia and New Zealand.”
“There’s a great mix as always in the squad, and the younger guys coming through are all hungry which keeps the more experienced players on their toes. Competition for places has been fierce and that’s got to be good for Irish cricket,” he added.
The announced Ireland team will also take participation in Dubai Tri Angular series 2015 in UAE against Afghanistan and Scotland.
