Team News:

Ireland

For a good portion of their clash against Bangladesh, Ireland were disciplined with their bowling lines, so that part of their line-up is unlikely to be tinkered with. Senior batsman Ed Joyce missed out due to a back injury and if recovered, should come in for Stuart Thompson as the only likely change to the XI.

Squad: William Porterfield (c), Andrew Balbirnie, Peter Chase, George Dockrell, Ed Joyce, Simi Singh, Barry McCarthy, Tim Murtagh, Kevin O’Brien, Niall O’Brien (wk), Paul Stirling, Stuart Thompson, Gary Wilson, Craig Young

New Zealand

Squad: Tom Latham (c), Hamish Bennett, Neil Broom, Scott Kuggeleijn, Colin Munro, James Neesham, Henry Nicholls, Jeetan Patel, Seth Rance, Luke Ronchi
