Cricket Ireland has issued an appeal after three laptops and two external hard drives went missing at the end of a game in Belfast last week.
A black Autograph flight case bag containing the equipment was stolen at the conclusion of the Ireland versus Namibia one-day games at the Civil Service club in Stormont last Tuesday July 5.
The equipment belonged to Ireland assistant coach and video analyst Pete Johnston who is distraught at the loss.
"The external hard drives contain footage of our matches, with game plans for the opposition and tactics which we employ as well as our own key performance indicators.
"I had everything with me as I was preparing for our ongoing tri-series with Sri Lanka and Scotland. The footage contained on these hard drives is crucial to our success and preparation for games. It's an accumulation of work over the past four years, and is irreplaceable. I'm appealing to anyone that finds these or is offered them for sale to get in touch with Cricket Ireland immediately."
An Ireland cricket shirt autographed by the World cup squad will be given as a reward for any information which leads to the retrieval of the mssing equipment.
The missing equipment is:
* 1 HP Mobile Workstation (grey/black)
* 1 Toshiba Qasmio Laptop (white)
* 1 Qasmio (grey/black)
* 2 small passport sized external hard drives - 1 TB each
