CricketEurope statistician John Boomer has just published our latest statszone and it features the 57 T20 internationals played by Ireland Women since 2008.

With many of their T20 encounters against lower ranked opposition not carrying T20 international status - that has now been changed by ICC, so future matches will carry elevated status - the figures aren't as impressive as they may have been.

The recently retired quartet of Clare Shillington, the Joyce twins and Ciara Metcalfe feature prominently, and there's no doubt they will be missed.

Shillington leads the run charts at 1019, with the best strike rate of 97.98. Isobel Joyce is second with 944 runs, while Cecelia is third with 659.

Kim Garth (34) has the most wickets, and the best-bowling average of 20.12.

The best economy rate belongs to Louise McCarthy, although she has only played two matches in the format since 2014.

Hockey double centurion Nikki Symmons also was a more than useful cricketer, and she holds the record for the top score in the format - 86 against The Netherlands.

It's one of only six half centuries in the shortest format, with one each for the Joyces and Clare Shillington, and two for Gaby Lewis, who has the best average at 21.20.

Ciara Metcalfe's 4 for 15 against Sri Lanka in the 2016 T20 World Cup remains the best figures, while Mary Waldron's 19 catches are not surprisingly the best.

Not far behind are Isobel Joyce (16), Kim Garth (13) and Clare Shillington (12).

In terms of appearances, Shillers has played 56 of the 57 matches, Isobel Joyce 55 and current skipper Laura Delany 49.

Encouragingly, Ireland's two best partnerships have both come this season, with Lewis and Delany adding 93, while Clare Shillington and Isobel Joyce put on 90.
