Former Dolphins seamer Graham Hume has been included in Ireland’s squad for next month’s ODI series against New Zealand.

Hume was capped almost 100 times at first-class level in South Africa – by Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal Inland and the Dolphins – and represented South Africa Under-19 before relocating to Ireland.

He has been playing Irish first-class cricket since 2019 – and has a retainer contract with Cricket Ireland.

“It’s pleasing to see Graham get his chance in the ODIs after repeated seasons of consistent form while he qualified to play for Ireland,” said chair of national men’s selectors Andre White.

“Hume has demonstrated his accuracy and ability to extract bounce and movement in home conditions – we are hoping his knack of prising out early breakthroughs will translate to the higher level.”
