Ireland v Australia

Kevin O'Brien says the four-day clash against Australia A at Stormont is a great opportunity for Ireland to test themselves against top opposition.

The Australian squad includes Test players Brad Haddin, Peter Siddle, Ryan Harris, Jackson Bird and James Pattinson while Pakistan-born leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed is in contention to play his first game for the Aussies.

Australia A captain Haddin has been impressed with Ireland's performances in ICC tournaments in recent years.

The game starts at Stormont on Friday.
