Ireland add Thompson to squad ahead of ODIs against England

Stuart Thompson has been added to the Ireland training squad ahead of their upcoming One Day Internationals against England.

Andrew Balbirnie's 22-man group will travel to Southampton for a training camp tomorrow ahead of a warm-up game next week.

The squad will then be cut to 14 players for the three One Day Internationals, which get underway on July the 30th.

"Returning to training was a great first step in the return to cricket, and we have all enjoyed getting back into the nets to brush out the cobwebs.”

Balbirnie says the Ireland squad have been working hard over the last three weeks to be ready for the games against the World Cup winners:

"However, playing international cricket is a huge honour - and not only do we have that to look forward to now, but we’ll be taking on the World Champions in their own backyard.

"That is the ultimate challenge – and we’ll be ready."

Upon arrival in England the players will be transported in bio-secure buses to a hotel within the grounds of the Ageas Bowl where they will stay until their departure on August the 5th.

Ireland training squad:

Andrew Balbirnie (captain), Paul Stirling (vice-captain), Mark Adair, Curtis Campher, Peter Chase, Gareth Delany, George Dockrell, Jonathan Garth, Tyrone Kane, Josh Little, Andrew McBrine, Barry McCarthy, James McCollum, Kevin O'Brien, William Porterfield, Boyd Rankin, Simi Singh, Harry Tector, Stuart Thompson, Lorcan Tucker, Gary Wilson, Craig Young.
