MCC will play Ireland ‘A’ in a three day game at Southgate Cricket Club from the 26-28 July 2017.
The fixture comes a fortnight after MCC played against Afghanistan who - along with Ireland - were granted Test status at the I.C.C.’s annual general meeting held in June.
Ireland ‘A’ are expected to field a strong side, with the inclusion of a number of players from the full international side.
MCC also boast a strong squad with inclusion of a number of exiting Candidates and Young Cricketers such as Ben Curran, Tom Smith and Joe Barrett - who will captain the side.
The MCC team will also include names with international pedigree with the inclusion of New Zealand Under 19s captain Finn Allen; Scotland’s Wicket-keeper Batsman – Matthew Cross, and Ireland’s own - George Dockrell, who will turn out for the Club.
The hours of play are scheduled to be 11.00-18.00 each day. Spectators are more than welcome to come and watch this fixture at one of Middlesex County Cricket Club’s out grounds – the picturesque Southgate Cricket Club.
