The addition of youngsters Daniel Forkin and Reuben Wilson to the Ireland Under 19 squad took the Leinster representation to double figures in the squad of 15.

Leinster have traditionally dominated youth cricket in Ireland over the past twenty years, and although the NCU have made giant strides in playing catch up in recent seasons, this has yet to transfer through at Under 19 level.

Daniel Forkin, the left-arm spinner from Merrion, was a like-for-like replacement for Cameron Doak, whose rugby prowess could well see him emulate his elder brother and father in the sport.

Daniel had an excellent experience last summer spending ten weeks at Queens College in Taunton as part of Cricket Leinster's school placement programme.

Added to this, he was regularly involved with the Somerset youth squads, playing regular games (including several two-day games) against other county sides throughout England during the months of May and June.

Pace bowler Wilson came up on the rails, impressing during training sessions over the past few weeks.

The Claremont Road youngster is just 15, and his inclusion four years ahead of schedule is a reflection of his talent as well as a dearth of fast bowling stock in Ireland.

The side will of course be skippered by his YMCA team mate Tim Tector, following proudly in the footsteps of his elder siblings Jack and Harry, who have both captained Ireland at Under 19 World Cups.

Jamie Forbes of YMCA completes the trio from the club, while also included in Pete Johnston's side for the tournament from the region are Luke Whelan (North County), Phillipe Le Roux (Railway Union), David Vincent (Clontarf), Muzamil Sherzad (North Kildare), Diarmuid Burke (Malahide), Nathan McGuire (Rush) and Clontarf's David Vincent.

Ireland are in the same group as India, Uganda and South Africa, with their first match due to get under way on Monday.
