Lorcan Tucker is an Ireland wicket-keeper batsman. He made his international debut in May 2019 against England and has since played two further T20Is and one ODI.

Tucker was born on 10 September 1996 in Dublin, Leinster, Ireland. As a youngster he played cricket for the Monaghan Cricket Club before being discovered by Irish cricketers Paul Stirling and Kevin O’Brien who invited him to train with them at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Cork.

Tucker began his first-class career with Leinster in 2016 and made his List A debut that same year as well, although he did not play any more matches for the county side until 2018 when he took part in their One Day Cup campaign which culminated in victory against Durham County at Chester Racecourse on 18 July 2018..

His final appearance for Leinster came during the club's unsuccessful attempt to win back-to-back titles during the 2019 Interprovincial Championship Division 1 tournament which finished on 9 October 2019.. In August 2017, he signed a three-year contract extension with English county Kent worth £40 000 per year including potential bonuses if they reached certain targets within those 3 years; these targets included winning 50 or more domestic cup matches over that period of time and qualifying for both European tournaments – Champions Trophy 2020/21 & 2023 ICC World Twenty20 qualifiers – after having competed each season up until then...

however Kent were relegated from EPL at end of season 2020 meaning those goals were not achieved... However Kent did reach Finals day of The FA Cup where they lost 2–1 to Chelsea FC so there must have been some bonus payments. Lorcan also plays club cricket for Belfast Giants CC

Tim Murtagh is a cricketing captain and bowler for London-based side Surrey. He has also represented Ireland in Test cricket, making his debut against Pakistan in May 2018.

Tim was born on 2 August 1981 in Lambeth, South East London to Irish parents AJ and CP Murtagh. His uncle is former international cricketer Tim Murtagh who played 55 Tests for Ireland between 1992 and 2002.

As a youngster, Tim attended the prestigious Coleraine Cricket Club where he developed his batting skills before joining Surrey's academy at the age of 16 years old in 1999. After progressing through the ranks at The Oval, he made his first-class debut for Surrey County Cricket Club against Oxford University back in 2003 - aged just 18 years old.

In 2012, following an impressive period with Middlesex County Cricket Club (where he won two county championships), then skipper Alex Cusack recommended him to newly appointed Irish selector John Mooney as part of their squad for that year's ICC World Twenty20 tournament which they hosted in Dublin...and boy did things go well. With Ireland reaching the semi final stage before narrowly losing to eventual champions Sri Lanka (in what was arguably one of Irish sport’s most heartwarming stories ever.), it was clear that there was huge potential within this young left arm fast medium bowler - especially considering how few overseas players were being picked up by counties outside England & Wales during those times due to financial constraints etc...

Since then [2018], Tim has gone onto represent Ireland 41 times across all formats of the game - including 19 ODIs*, 8 T20Is* and 5 tests*. *denotes as captain

Carroll is a right-handed batsman and bowler who has played for Ireland since 2007. Carroll made his international debut in January 2007, against Bermuda.

He has scored fifteen ODI caps and last featured in July 2007 against the Netherlands. In domestic cricket, Carroll plays for Middlesex County Cricket Club (MCC).

At club level he is known as "The Cannon". He led MCC to their first Twenty20 Cup title in 2014 and was named man of the match on several occasions whilst playing for them during that period including an innings of 157 not out against Surrey in 2012 which helped Middlesex win by 6 wickets.

A powerful hitter of the ball with good control, Carroll's batting style often sees him score runs quickly off the front foot via lofted shots or drives through the covers area; however, he can also be lethal when opening up with a slower ball from round the wicket or cutting one over point if conditions allow it
