The Men’s Emerging Ireland squad have arrived in Antigua for a five-match multi-format series. The series features three List A (50-overs) matches and two four-day first-class matches in the space of eighteen days.

The tour is an opportunity for emerging talent in the Irish pathway system to gain high-quality playing time, along with the experience of playing in overseas conditions.

The Emerging Ireland side is a hybrid mix of capped internationals – Stephen Doheny, Fionn Hand, Matthew Humphreys and Murray Commins – some players with first-class experience and players on their first international tour.

Here’s all you need to know about the series.
