Cricket Ireland have announced a T20I tri-series along with Scotland and Netherlands at home from Sep 15th – 20th, 2019. All games will be held at Malahide Cricket Club in Dublin.
After the postponement of the announced Euro T20 Slam tournament, all three cricket boards were left with a big gap of scheduling as their next assigment was due in Oct 2019 in Oman during a 5-nation T20I tournament. The tri-series will compensate for the loss of fixtures for the national squad members. All matches are being planned to have being live streamed on Cricket Ireland’s digital channels.
The tournament will be part of the preparatory plans for all the three countries ahead of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Global Qualifiers in UAE in Oct/Nov 2019.
Netherlands: Pieter Seelaar (Captain), Philippe Boissevain, Vikram Singh, Tobias Visée, Scott Edwards, Clayton Floyd, Paul van Meekeren, Bas de Leede, Fred Klaassen, Tonny Staal, Brandon Glover, Max O’Dowd, Ben Cooper & Shane Snater
