Campher gets first Ireland T20 call-up
Dublin: Ireland have named ODI and T20I squads for the upcoming fixtures against Zimbabwe which will commence on 27 August in Dublin.
While all players except uncapped Stephen Doheny have been retained into the squad after the South Africa series, all-rounder Curtis Campher has received his maiden call-up for Ireland in the shortest format, having recovered from an ankle injury.
Senior player William Porterfield has also returned to the ODI mix after sustaining a finger injury in the South Africa series.
The white-ball series forms an important part of the home side's preparation in the lead up to ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in October, while the three-match ODIs are also critical to both teams as they form part of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League.
Andrew White, Chair of National Men’s Selectors, emphasised the increased flexibility required during the T20 World Cup and preparations for the same will be finalised in this series.

Andrew Balbirnie (Captain), Mark Adair, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Shane Getkate, Josh Little, Barry McCarthy, William McClintock, Kevin O’Brien, Neil Rock, Simi Singh, Paul Stirling, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, Ben White, Craig Young.
