Former Zimbabwe player has been named in Ireland's Test squad for Sri Lanka and Bangladesh series

Former Zimbabwe international Peter Moor has been picked in Ireland’s Test squads for upcoming matches against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka while senior batter Paul Stirling misses out.

However, Stirling will lead Ireland in the ODIs against Sri Lanka in the absence of rested captain Andy Balbirnie, who is set to captain his country across all formats in Bangladesh and the Test in Sri Lanka.

Moor had qualified to play for Ireland last October, though he was overlooked for the tour of Zimbabwe last month. Moor, 32, has represented Zimbabwe in eight Tests, 49 ODIs and 21 T20Is, with his last appearance for them coming in a T20I in October 2019.
