Veteran opener Paul Stirling will lead the Irish contingent as they look to make a mark in the marquee tournament.

The squad boasts a blend of experience and youthful exuberance. Stirling, a proven performer in the shortest format, will bring stability at the top of the order. He’ll be ably supported by established names like Andrew Balbirnie, a dependable batsman, and George Dockrell, a wily spin bowler.

Exciting young talents like Harry Tector, a hard-hitting batsman, and fast bowler Craig Young have also earned their call-ups. Their energy and fearless approach could be crucial for Ireland’s success.

Ireland have been placed in Group A alongside powerhouses like India and Pakistan. However, the team is known for its fighting spirit and ability to pull off upsets. With a determined leader in Stirling and a well-rounded squad, Ireland will be hoping to cause some surprises in the tournament.
