Wilson added to Ireland squad

Gary Wilson has been added to Ireland's squad for their first Friends Provident Trophy game with Worcestershire at Stormont on Sunday.

The 23 year old wicket-keeper batsman is not required by his county Surrey for their game with Gloucestershire, and has been given permission to join up with Ireand.

Wilson has played 48 times for Ireland, and was part of their recent successful ICC WCQ Trophy winning squad.

Tickets for the game are priced at £10 (€11) for adults, and £6 (€6.60) for OAPs. There is free admission for accompanied children, while there is a £3 (€3.30) charge for those unaccompanied.

The action at Stormont gets underway at 10:45am, and live ball-by-ball coverage will appear on the Cricket Ireland website www.irishcricket.org
