Carrie Archer, Chair of National Women’s Selectors, said:
“It’s not only important for the Ireland Women’s squad to play more fixtures, but also to play in different conditions. So, we are pleased with the opportunity to play a three-match ODI series in Holland and provide – particularly the younger players – another experience for their development as well-rounded cricketers.
“The Selectors have welcomed back several players that were unavailable for the ODI series against South Africa, and believe we have a side that blends experience with youth that largely featured in the recent T20I Tri-Series against Australia and Pakistan. Indeed, this upcoming series builds on a busy home international season and will provide invaluable experience in this format before we face Pakistan away in the ICC Women’s Championship in November.”
It is anticipated that the matches will be livestreamed, with confirmation of details to be made in due course.
