Lorcan Tucket to miss Zimbabwe T20Is to play ILT20

Ireland’s wicketkeeper batter Lorcan Tucker who had a wonderful tournament in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 is set to miss the Zimbabwe T20I series which is set to start on January 12 and end on January 15. But set to play for the ODI series which starts on January 18 and ends on January 23. He is set to miss the Zimbabwe T20I series as he is going to play for ILT20. MI Emirates has signed him as a new signing for the inaugural edition of the ILT20 league.

Historically, Ireland has only tended to grant No-Objection Certificates (NOCs) to centrally-contracted players when leagues do not clash with their international schedule. But the growth of their fixture list, the increasing number of opportunities available in franchise cricket, and the new prominence of their leading players suggest their stance will soften in order to ensure they are not tempted to turn down central contracts and go freelance.

After Lorcan Tucker, Josh Little is going to miss the Zimbabwe series as he is going to represent Pretoria Capitals in the SA20.
