Cricket Ireland has today announced a 12-player squad for Cricket Ireland Academy’s three-day match against Free Foresters First XI to be played at Arundel Castle in West Sussex between 6-8 September 2022.

This is the third red-ball tour this summer, following matches against Gloucestershire 2nd XI and England Under-19s, and forms part of Ireland’s preparations for the return of Test cricket.

The squad is:

James McCollum (Waringstown/Northern Knights) (captain), Ryan Karunakaran (Buckhurst CC), Alistair Frost (Malahide/Munster Reds), Cade Carmichael (Instonians/Northern Knights), Morgan Topping (Waringstown/Northern Knights), Ryan Hunter (CSNI), Phillippe le Roux (Railway Union), Cian Robertson (Intstonians CC), Matthew Humphreys (Lisburn/Northern Knights), Muzamil Sherzad (North Kildare/Leinster Lightning), Finn Catherwood (Beaconsfield CC), Matthew Foster (CSNI/Northern Knights).

  Head coach: Pete Johnston
  Assistant coach: Albert van der Merwe


Pete Johnston, National Academy and Performance Manager, said: 

“This will be our third and final multi-day fixture in the UK in 2022. We’re delighted to continue our relationship with the Free Forresters, and it will be a great experience to play at Arundel Castle which provides another quality venue.

“The longer format provides the best challenge for young players and represents the best all-round development opportunity. For the players, there have been so many learnings and good performances from our first two matches, and we are pleased to see two more exciting young players – Ryan Hunter and Finn Catherwood – called up for their first taste of multi-day cricket with the Academy.”
