Ireland's George Dockrell hopes to be back for another World Cup

New Delhi: Ireland's George Dockrell on Monday said he was hoping to be back at the ICC World Cup 2019 in England.

Dockrell along with his Irish colleagues impressed once again at the ICC's show-piece event in Australia and New Zealand.

Ireland continued their tradition of beating fancied teams this year as well as they stunned the West Indies in a Pool B game.

Previous Irish triumphs include wins over England and Pakistan in 2011 and 2007 respectively.

The slow left-arm orthodox bowler took to micro-blogging site Twitter to describe his experience at the World Cup.

Ever since David Richardson hinted at reducing the number of teams at the next edition of the World Cup, the cricket fraternity has been embroiled in a huge debate regarding the role of associate nations.

Voices in favour of teams like Ireland have been growing and several former cricketers have called for greater participation of associate nations through the cricket calendar.
