Ahead of the 2019 Ashes series, England will play an only four-day home Test match against Ireland. On Wednesday (17th July), England National Cricket Selectors have announced a strong 13-member squad for the upcoming Test match against Ireland.

England and Ireland will play a four-day Test match at Lord’s (London) from 24th July. One week later of this Test match, England and Australia will begin the 2019 Ashes journey.

Among the 13-member strong Test squad, five were in England’s 15-member squad in the recently concluded 2019 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. These five players are Joe Root, Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy and Chris Woakes.

Moreover, four of them featured in the final of this competition, which finally resulted in England’s maiden CWC victory. Excluding Moeen Ali, all the other four players featured in that final.

England’s most run-scorer in 2019 CWC, Joe Root will continue to lead the Test side in Ireland match.

The 33-year-old opening batsman Joe Denly is also in the Test squad. He was in the initial CWC squad, but later, he was dropped out from the main CWC squad.

Both the senior English pacers, James Anderson and Stuart Broad, are in this 13-man Test squad.

Meanwhile, Jofra Archer and Mark Wood are not in this Test squad due to their injuries. Both these bowlers, who featured in the 2019 CWC final, are facing left side strains.
