Following back to back victories against North American opposition in the shape of Canada and USA, we now host more familiar foe in the form of Ireland.
We’ve made one change to the squad that defeated USA at Edgbaston. Dawid Malan, who acted as twelfth man in that match, drops out and Chris Woakes is recalled
A final decision between spin bowler Liam Dawson, who performed well at Edgbaston and Chris Woakes will be taken on the morning of the match.
The full squad is as follows:
Joe Root (Captain)
Jonny Bairstow (Wicketkeeper)
We’re expecting plenty of rain in Manchester and this will likely effect our selection of the playing XI for what we anticipate will be a fiercely contested encounter.
