As expected, it's been confirmed that former international all-rounder Andrew White has replaced Kyle McCallan as both the international and Northern Knights selector.

It could well be a case of being careful what you wish for given the recent flak coming the way of both the Northern Knights and Ireland over recent selections.

There's no doubting the pedigree of White who will be seen as a like for like replacement of McCallan - both highly respected after the longevity of their domestic and international careers.

The Instonians man's first task will be to select a squad for the T20 encounter with Warriors at Comber on Friday.

The Ireland senior squad for the Sri Lanka series will also be selected following the conclusion of the low key Ireland A three-day encounter with MCC at Bready.
