Cricket: Ireland trio set for Pakistan return

LONDON, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 28th july, 2016) - Ireland are set to welcome back Niall O'Brien, Craig Young and Boyd Rankin for their forthcoming one-day international series against Pakistan. The trio all missed the recent drawn series against Afghanistan but will be available for next month's two ODIs with Pakistan at Malahide, near Dublin.

O'Brien, who struck 72 in Ireland's 2007 World Cup win over Pakistan, is fit following a calf problem, while Young is back after an elbow injury. Meanwhile Rankin is set to make his return to Irish cricket, having briefly represented England in just one Test, against Australia at Sydney in 2014.

"It's great to have an almost full-strength squad to choose from," said Ireland coach John Bracewell on Thursday.
