Mark Chilton, James Benning and Kevin Dean are among those to have had county careers who will pit their skills at Lord's.

Ireland A meanwhile are skippered by 22-year-old James Shannon.

Shannon, who plays for the Ionians club in Ireland, spoke of his delight at leading his country's second string at the Home of Cricket.

He said: "It is a great honour and privilege to firstly be selected, and secondly captain such a strong side at the start of the 2012 season.

"It is a fantastic opportunity being part of the squad, and to be playing at Lords against MCC."
