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.
