Ireland women's training camp
Wed, Jan 18, 2012 1:56 PM
Cricket Ireland has announced a squad of 16 for their winter training preparations.
The squad is very much along expected lines with the bulk of players having participated in the recent World Cup qualifiers in Bangladesh.
Although Ireland failed to make the finals, they did manage to retain their One Day International status with victory against The Netherlands.
2012 promises to be yet another crucial year for the team, with the T20 World Cup qualifiers taking place at Bready in the North West in August.
The team are also taking part once again in the revamped ECB County Championships, and will be playing in the nine team Division 3 league. Their opponents will include Scotland, Gloucestershire, Northants and Derbyshire.
Former Irish international Jeremy Bray is retained as the coach and will be hoping for some major scalps for his young side in 2012.
The squad in full is as follows:
