Ireland's head coach Graham Ford:



"I'm very pleased to see this pre-Qualifier warm-up series announced - it's not only important for our squad to play competitive T20 cricket before the World Cup Qualifier, but to do so in similar conditions to the UAE will be a crucial part of our preparations," Ireland's head coach Graham Ford said on Monday (August 12). "We have put a lot of work into improving our T20 skills over the last two years and I think we're starting to see the benefits of that work. Many of the players have grown impressively as cricketers and I feel that as a team there are exciting signs of progress.

"While it's true that we haven't played as much international T20 cricket as we would have liked over the past 12 months, what we have at the international and domestic level has really demonstrated the potential of the squad - we now need to focus on the task at hand and give ourselves the best shot at world cup qualification."
