Ireland have named a full strength squad for the final World Cup qualifying tournament that begins in Zimbabwe next month with dual international Peter ‘PJ’ Moor included in the 15 to provide both experience and local knowledge.

While Merrion opener Stephen Doherty misses out, the selectors have given themselves as many as five spin bowling options in the expectation that they will be playing on used pitches in the crucial Super Six stage.

“PJ’s experience in Zimbabwean conditions and his versatility batting anywhere from one to seven gives us great cover,” chairman of selectors Andrew White said.

“Stephen Doheny is a player we admire and want to continue to invest in, but we think the time is right for him to take a step back and work on a few technical aspects of his game at domestic level.”

Meanwhile, Belfast-based seam bowler Matthew Foster has been called into the Ireland squad for next week’s Test match against England at Lord’s, as a replacement for Conor Olphert who has suffered a setback in his recovery from a knee injury.
