Ireland have been forced to make a change to their ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 squad after middle-order batter Rebecca Stokell was ruled out of the tournament.

Stokell, who played a starring role in Ireland’s progress to the tournament with a crucial cameo in the semi-finals of the qualifying tournament in Abu Dhabi against Zimbabwe, sustained a foot ligament injury a week out from the tournament.

After a medical assessment, Stokell was withdrawn from the squad with Rachel Delaney named as her replacement.

“We are all devastated for Rebecca and wish her a speedy recovery,” Carrie Archer, National Selector, said.


“Rachel Delaney has been called up – an experienced all-rounder who has been part of recent senior squads. We wish Rachel well as she flies out to join the Irish camp.”

Ireland Women will face England in their opening ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 Group game on February 13. India, Pakistan and West Indies are the other teams in their group.

Updated Ireland squad: Laura Delany (captain), Georgina Dempsey, Amy Hunter, Shauna Kavanagh, Arlene Kelly, Gaby Lewis, Louise Little, Sophie MacMahon, Jane Maguire, Cara Murray, Leah Paul, Orla Prendergast, Eimear Richardson, Mary Waldron, Rachel Delaney.
