The Isle of Man cricket squad for July’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Sub-Regional Europe Qualifier in Finland has been named.

The 14-strong playing party heading to Scandinavia next month is captained by Cronkbourne’s Matthew Ansell.

Joining him in the squad are: Sam Barnett, Eddie Beard, brothers George and Joe Burrows, Jacob Butler, Kieran Cawte, Fraser Clarke, Josh Clough, Carl Hartmann, Dollin Jansen, Nathan Knights, Chris Langford and Adam McAuley.

The Isle of Man form part of group two of the competition and will take on Romania, Cyprus, Turkey and Serbia, with the matches taking place from July 12 to 19 at grounds in Tikkurila and Kerava.

In group one are hosts Finland, Italy, Sweden, Greece and Croatia.

This is the start of the qualification process for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in the USA and West Indies in 2024.

Eight qualification spots are available through regional qualifiers – two teams from Europe will qualify for the main event to join 12 automatic qualifiers. The competition will be streamed on the ICC’s website ICC.tv
