Phoenix all-rounder Reinhardt Strydom has been included in the MCC squad which is embarking on a South American tour where they will take on Brazil, Chile and Peru.

The 39 year-old played 32 times for Ireland in 2008 and 2009, and has been a regular performer for MCC in Ireland and further afield.

The fifteen-day trip is the first of three overseas tours which will take place this year, with visits to Sweden and Kenya to follow.

MCC will take on the Brazilian, Chilean and Peruvian national sides during the trip, as well as several other fixtures against leading clubs in Brazil and Chile.

All matches on the tour will follow the T20 format.
