Waringstown pace bowler Graham Hume will fly out to Australia to replace the injured Craig Young ahead of Ireland Men’s T20 World Cup campaign starting on 17 October.

Mark Rausa, Head of Physiotherapy and Medical Services at Cricket Ireland, said:

“Unfortunately, whilst out in Sydney for our T20 World Cup prep camp, Craig experienced a recurrence of a chronic issue which we have been managing for quite some time. Whilst we thought we were on top of the issue, it sadly flared up once we arrived in Sydney and began training. Craig will now return home for an assessment with our medical specialists to plan out his rehab.”

Hume, 31, made his international debut in July 2022 against New Zealand in a one-day international, then made his T20 International debut the next month against Afghanistan.

He will fly out on the earliest flight possible in order to benefit from the warm-up period ahead of the tournament proper.

The Irish squad flies to Melbourne tomorrow where they will play Namibia and Sri Lanka in two official warm-up matches.
