England vs Ireland - Only Test, The Lord's

Stirling picked, Little rested for England Test

Dublin: Ireland have named a 15-member squad to play England in the one-off Test in the beginning of June.

Andrew Balbirnie will lead a strong Ireland squad that will take on England at Lord's in the one-off Test from June 1.

Senior pacer Craig Young, who has played 90 international white-ball games, was named in the squad and could make his Test debut at Lord's.

However, Josh Little, who returned from the IPL to play in the Bangladesh series, was rested for the Test considering the white-ball commitments in the near future.

Ireland Squad:
Andrew Balbirnie (c), Mark Adair, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Fionn Hand, Graham Hume, Tom Mayes, Andrew McBrine, James McCollum, PJ Moor, Conor Olphert, Paul Stirling, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, Craig Young.

Andrew McBrine and George Dockrell are the only spinners while there are a handful of quicks to pick from for the red-ball game.

This is the second time Ireland will play England in a Test match. In 2019, when these teams met at Lord's, Ireland were sensational with the ball, bowling England out for 85 in the first innings.

However, they succumbed to a 143-run loss after being bowled out for 38 in the second innings.
