Ireland won’t be overawed in Lord’s Test: Wilson

AFP, London

Ireland wicketkeeper-batsman Gary Wilson insists his side are determined not to be overawed when they play England in their country's Test debut at Lord's.

William Porterfield's team will embark on their maiden Test at cricket's spiritual home on Wednesday in another sign of the sport's development in Ireland.

Ireland have played two Test matches since their ascension to Full Membership status of the International Cricket Council two years ago.

But those defeats to Pakistan and Afghanistan were far less prestigious occasions that the four-day Test with newly-crowned World Cup winners England.

Playing at Lord's has given many great players stage-fright in the past and Wilson urged his team-mates not to get intimidated by the hallowed venue's unique atmosphere.
