Ireland news ‘We’ve a lot to offer in T20 cricket’ : Graham Ford

Graham Ford

Graham Ford, Ireland’s coach, believes that each player in his group has much to offer in T20 cricket, ahead of the clash against Scotland in the ongoing tri-series in the Netherlands. Ireland, that are currently placed at No.17, will need to rise up in order to qualify for the World T20 in 2020.

“I don’t want to single out individuals,” said Ford on Saturday (June 16). “But some players have improved their cricket, some take to this format, but every single player in the group has a lot to offer in T20 cricket. It is just about taking their game forward.

“I am quite excited about the make-up of the group and excited by the talent in the squad. There’s a lot of hard work that needs to be done and the boys are up for it, but it’s about sharpening the skills before the next World Twenty20 qualifiers.”
