Ireland announce 14-man squad West Indies ODI

Belfast: Ireland on Thursday announced the 14-man squad for the upcoming one-off One-Day International (ODI) against visitors West Indies at the Civil Service Cricket Club in Stormont, Belfast on September 13.

This would also be Ireland's first inetrnational tie following their Test status in June.

Fast bowlers Barry McCarthy and Craig Young have been ruled out of the one-day international against West Indies at Stormont.

McCarthy has a fractured right thumb while Young is missing because of an elbow injury.

Ireland squad:
William Porterfield (Warwickshire/Warriors, capt)
John Anderson (Merrion/Lightning)
Andrew Balbirnie (Pembroke/Lightning)
Peter Chase (Malahide/Lightning)
George Dockrell (Leinster/Lightning)
Ed Joyce (Merrion/Lightning)
Jacob Mulder (CIYMS/Knights)
Tim Murtagh (Middlesex)
Kevin O'Brien (Railway Union/Lightning)
Niall O'Brien (Nantwich/Warriors, wk)
Boyd Rankin (Warwickshire)
Simi Singh (YMCA/Lightning)
Paul Stirling (Middlesex)
Gary Wilson (Derbyshire/Knights, wk)

Paul Stirling and Niall O'Brien are back from injury while George Dockrell has been recalled to the squad.

West Indies clinched a thrilling Test win against England on Tuesday and they will have a strong side for the 13 September encounter.

Ireland have a good one-day record against the West Indies, beating them in the 2015 World Cup in New Zealand as well as at Stormont in 2004.

No mention of the history between the two sides would be complete without a mention of perhaps one of the most famous days in Irish history, when they skittled the West Indies for just 25 at Sion Mills in 1969.
