Porterfield to miss I Cup clash against Netherlands
Cricket Ireland announced today their squad for the Intercontinental Cup and RSA Series one-day internationals against The Netherlands next month.

With William Porterfield unavailable due to county commitments with Gloucestershire, Trent Johnston takes over the captaincy duties once again.

Ireland are also without Niall O'Brien who underwent surgery on his damaged finger last week, and is expected to be out of action for around two months. Opening bowler Boyd Rankin is required by Warwickshire, and won't be travelling over for the games.

Surrey's Gary Wilson, who top scored for Ireland in their last ODI against Bangladesh, is available and will keep wicket in O'Brien's absence.

The squad in full is as follows:

Trent Johnston (captain) (Railway Union)
Alex Cusack (Clontarf)
George Dockrell (Leinster)
James Hall (Waringstown)
Nigel Jones (Civil Service North) - ODI's only
John Mooney (North County)
Kevin O’Brien (Railway Union)
Paul Stirling (Middlesex)
Albert van der Merwe (The Hills)
Andrew White (Instonians)
Gary Wilson (Surrey)
Craig Young (Bready/Sussex)
