Ireland Women have named their squad for the European leg of the T20 World Cup Qualifers.

Laura Delany skippers the squad which will play in the six team event in Spain from August 26-31.

The Irish will be competing alongside Scotland, The Netherlands, Scotland, Germany, France and Turkey for the one automatic place through to the next phase of the qualification process.

“We’ve had a decent preparation period with the squad – the Super Series, the match against Lancashire and the Netherlands series have all allowed us the opportunity to hone our tactics and help shape the roles each member of the squad will be expected to play," said Head Coach Ed Joyce. 

"We’ll spend the next 10 days or so getting final preparations in place, but most of the hard work and planning has already been done, so it’s a case of trusting our abilities and executing our plans out on the field.

“With only one side going through from here, it will be a challenging week - but what’s definitely pleasing for me is that I was confident no matter which 14 players were selected, will be taking a talented, eager and hungry group to Spain that are capable of competing on all fronts.”
