Zimbabwean PJ Moor has been named in an Ireland squad that will play in Bristol next week.

The Irish squad is a mix of Wolves and Academy players who will feature in a red-ball game against a Gloucestershire XI that will feature a selection of players not involved in the ongoing T20 blast.

The multi-day game will provide Heinrich Malan an opportunity to cast his eye over potential Test players, with Ireland hoping to end their three-year exile next year.

The 31 year-old Moor last played for Zimbabwe in October 2019, having played 49 ODI's. 8 Tests, and 21 T20I's. The Irish passport holder can play for his adopted country at senior level from October.

Pete Johnston's squad fly out on Sunday, which means players involved will miss the Irish Senior Cup second round.

That hasn't gone down well with the clubs who have slammed the governing body over the timing of 'a glorified friendly' which clashes with Ireland's supposedly premier club competition.

Six times winners Waringstown are set to be without a trio of their pivotal players with Graham Hume, Morgan Topping and James McCollum all included.

The Lawn side have featured in the last five finals (three wins, two losses) and face a tough task having to take a weakened side to Leinster.

2013 winners Clontarf are also set to be severely disrupted with in addition to Moor, David Delany returning to Irish colours.

The Clontarf speedster hasn't played a senior international since a serious knee injury sustained during the  2020 T20 World Cup qualifying match against Jersey in October 2019.

If Fionn Hand is also called into the squad as a late replacement, then they too will be missing a triumvirate as they travel to Merrion, but for the moment it's just the influential duo.

The National Cup also takes place on Sunday, which will mean Phillipe Le Roux will miss holders Railway Union's game, and Neil Rock won't be playing for Rush.

The full squad and fixture details will be confirmed in the coming days.
