No fewer than six Ireland players will be involved in the US Open cricket tournament that gets under way next week.

Skipper Andrew Balbirnie will be joined by Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, Lorcan Tucker, Gareth Delany and Harry Tector for the competition which will feature 12 teams between December 5th an 13th.

Tector and Delany both played last year in the event before joining up with the Ireland squad for their series against USA.
