Test Triangle Inter-Provincial squads announced

The first match of the much-anticipated Test Triangle Inter-Provincial Series is set to begin on 20 August, and provincial selectors have finalised their initial squads ahead of what promises to be exciting T20 and 50-over competitions pitting best v best in the Irish men’s game.

The season will also see the introduction of a new match centre and livestreaming service that will feature:

  • Live scorecard
  • Livestream coverage of every match
  • Video highlight clips
  • Ball-by-ball and statistical analysis (including Wagon Wheel, Worm, Manhattan)

Several ‘feature’ matches will be selected that will have an enhanced livestream (including multiple cameras and commentary), however it is anticipated that further enhancements being introduced for the 2021 season will see multi-camera capability deployed at all matches.

THE SQUADS

Leinster Lightning

 

T20 squad: George Dockrell (capt), Gareth Delany, Matt Ford, Andrew Balbirnie, Lorcan Tucker, Kevin O’Brien, Curtis Campher, Simi Singh, Tyrone Kane, Barry McCarthy, Josh Little, Peter Chase, Rory Anders.

50-over squad: George Dockrell (capt), Gareth Delany, Stephen Doheny, Andrew Balbirnie, Lorcan Tucker, Kevin O’Brien, Curtis Campher, Simi Singh, Tyrone Kane, Barry McCarthy, Josh Little, Peter Chase, Jack Tector.

Munster Reds

T20 squad: Jack Tector (capt), Matthew Brewster, Jonathan Garth, Neil Rock, Tim Tector, Matthew Foster, Diarmuid Carey, Aaron Cawley, Senan Jones, Stephen Doheny, Ruadhan Jones, Jeremy Lawlor, Jamie McNulty.

Jack Tector, captain of Munster Reds, said:

“We’re delighted to see representative cricket get underway this season – there was huge concern back in March and April that we wouldn’t potentially get anything in. But to get back to playing club cricket the last few weeks to build up towards the Inter-Pros is really exciting and the squad are really looking forward to getting out there.”

“The Munster squad is shaping up well – Pebbles [Neil Rock] and Matthew Foster have come down this year from the Northern Knights, which are great additions, and Jeremy Lawlor has come over from Glamorgan – I played a little bit with Jeremy over in Glamorgan, and he will bring some strength to the batting in this Munster team.”

“It’ll be brilliant to have two games at The Mardyke this season, it’s a magnificent ground and they are great hosts, so it’s fantastic that Inter-Pro cricket is returning to Cork and hopefully the team can put on a show for the fans.”

“We had a decent campaign last year without perhaps the results going our way, we’ve really progressed as a squad and over the years have become more-and-more consistent. We obviously had that last-ball heart ache last year against Leinster but at least we can take away confidence from matches like that, knowing that we can compete with the best teams in the competition.”
