Cricket Ireland this morning announced the Ireland 'A' squad for a T20 fixture with Croatia this Sunday July 19.

Reinhardt Strydom captains the team at his home ground, while there is a return to Irish colours for Dom Joyce who has been in such scintillating form in domestic cricket this year. Niall McDonnell from Strabane is another who has been scoring heavily, and he gets a chance at this level for the first time.
Rory McCann from Instonians is the wicket-keeper, while the highly rated Pembroke bowler Allan Eastwood will be keen to impress the selectors.
The game will take place at Sandymount, home of YMCA, and play gets under way at 2pm with free entry for spectators.
The squad in full is as follows:
  • Reinhardt Strydom (capt) (YMCA)
  • Chris Dougherty (Bready)
  • Phil Eaglestone (Strabane)
  • Allen Eastwood (Pembroke)
  • Thinus Fourie (CIYMS)
  • Dom Joyce (Merrion)
  • Richard Keaveney (Merrion)
  • Gary Kidd (Waringstown)
