Munster Senior Cup Quarter-Final team news

Cork County begin the defence of their Munster Senior Cup title on Saturday at the Mardyke when they take on the side they defeated in last season’s final, Limerick Raiders. The draw has been unkind to both of the strongest sides in the competition as they are drawn together at the Quarter Final stage. Cork County can select from a full squad with the exception of the injured Robert Duggan and have announced a very strong side for Saturday’s quarter final tie.

After last weekend’s impressive showing in the Leinster League Division 2 clash against Malahide when County were on course to set Malahide a challenging total before the weather intervened. Cork County finished their innings in the 41st over on 209-6 with captain Bruce Koch looking in ominous form on 60* while opener Ross Durity (35) and overseas player George Barry (32) also made good starts. After a strong showing for the 2nd XI when be scored 84 runs on Sunday, Chris Banon returns to the side to replace Des O’Leary while Andrew Saul also comes back into the side to replace Andrew Wootton.
