MTB Northern Knights squad announcement - Munster Reds - 27th May - Dublin


MTB Northern Knights Head Coach Simon Johnston has named a 13-man squad to face Munster Reds in Dublin on Thursday. 

There is one change from the washed-out match against North West Warriors at Bready last Friday. Seamer Matthew Foster returns, replacing Carl Robinson. 

Harry Tector will captain the side and be joined by fellow Irish internationals Mark Adair, Graeme McCarter and Paul Stirling. The quartet have been named in Ireland's squad to play the Netherlands in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League in Utrecht next month. 

Thursday's match has been switched from The Mardyke, Cork to Pembroke Cricket Club, Dublin due to unforeseen weather conditions. 

Speaking ahead of Thursday's match against Munster Reds, Johnston said: "The upcoming game is huge for us – there's no doubt about that. 

"Munster Reds have a lot of talented players who can pose a threat with both bat and ball. We'll definitely have to be at our best if we are to win the match. 

"It's great to have Matthew Foster back in the side after missing the last match. He will bolster our seam attack and bring something extra to the team." 

MTB Northern Knights squad to face Munster Reds:

Harry Tector (c), Mark Adair, Matthew Foster, Luke Georgeson, Matthew Humphreys, Jeremy Lawlor, John Matchett, Graeme McCarter, James McCollum, Ruhan Pretorius, Neil Rock, Paul Stirling, Ben White.
