Key Men Ireland boast a veritable giant slayer in Kevin O’Brien, and if ever a moment presented itself to build on his 2011 demolition of England, this is it. The absence of seamer John Mooney, banned for a slur on Twitter, need remedying too.

Mohammad Irfan has the makings of the a real gem, fitness and adequate nurturing allowed. Some hefty hauls against batsmen unfamiliar with his pace and height would really set ignite his Champions Trophy aspirations.
