Joyce relishes Ireland recall

Ed Joyce has spoken of his determination to contribute to the development of Irish cricket after calling time on playing for his adopted country, England, in order to return to the Ireland squad for the first time in five years:

“It’s good to be back. It’s been a bit weird watching the lads do so well in the last few years, but as an Irishman it’s nice to be wearing the shirt again.

“I’m disappointed I never got to play Test cricket for England, which was the point in the first place. Ireland don’t play Test cricket, although hopefully that changes soon.

“It might not happen for me but hopefully Ireland cricket will get to the stage in the next 10 or 15 years where they’re ready and I pass on my experience.”
