Player Profile

After being granted permission to return to Ireland's ranks after representing England at the last World Cup, Joyce brings a real touch of class to the batting line-up. An elegant left-hander with all the shots, there's a sense that England might not have got the best out of his talent. He has an ODI century against Australia on his record and made two half-centuries in the first stage of the last World Cup as an opening batsman for England. A move to Sussex from Middlesex has revitalised his career in English domestic cricket, where he has become one of the most dangerous one-day batsmen on the circuit. Having lined up for England against Ireland and Eoin Morgan four years ago, it will be fascinating to see roles reversed this time around.
