New Delhi:

UAE batsman Chirag Suri, who earned an IPL contract last month has not been picked up to play against Ireland, scheduled to be held on Thursday.

Suri was picked up by Gujarat Lions for his base price of INR 10 lakh (approximately US $15,000) in last month’s auction. He was a part of the UAE squad in the Tri-nation ODI series against Hong Kong and Scotland in January but did not play a game.

Batsmen Rameez Shahzad and Laxman Sreekumar have been recalled to the 14-member team. Both Shahzad and Sreekumar last played an ODI for UAE in August last year, although Shahzad featured in the Desert T20 Challenge earlier this year.

The squad will be led by Rohan Mustafa, with Shaiman Anwar named as vice-captain. The second match of the series will be played on March 4.

UAE squad: Rohan Mustafa (capt), Adnan Mufti, Ahmed Raza, Amjad Javed, Ghulam Shabber, Imran Haider, Mohammad Naveed, Mohammad Qasim, Muhammad Usman, Qadeer Ahmed, Shaiman Anwar (vice-capt), Zahoor Khan, Rameez Shahzad, Laxman Sreekumar
