DateLine: 4th June 2010


Ireland have named a 13-man squad for the RSA Challenge One-Day International against Australia at Clontarf on 17 June.


It is the same squad which played in the ICC World Twenty20 last month in the West Indies, with the only players missing from that tournament being all-rounder Nigel Jones, and 17-year old Leinster left arm spinner George Dockrell.


Simmons admitted the unavailability of Dockrell is a big blow to the side: 'It's a pity that George can't make the game, but he has exams which are obviously important to his future. He'd been bowling really well and settled in superbly to international cricket. That has helped us offset the retirement of Kyle McCallan, and the injuries to Regan West.'


Squad :


William Porterfield (capt), Trent Johnston, Andre Botha, Peter Connell, Alex Cusack, Gary Kidd, John Mooney, Kevin O'Brien, Niall O'Brien, Boyd Rankin, Paul Stirling, Andrew White, Gary Wilson.
