Ed Joyce confirms Ireland ambitions
Misses out by a small amount by qualification, so Ireland are seeking an exemption under the "special circumstances" clause.
Here's hoping that he gets it granted.
Hugh Morris, Managing Director of England Cricket wished Joyce all the best on his return to Ireland colours saying: "While we are naturally disappointed to lose a player of Ed's calibre from our pool of potential England players, we entirely respect and understand the reasons behind his decision. Ed is a player of proven international quality who played an important role in England's Commonwealth Bank Series win over Australia in 2007 and we wish him well in his future career with Ireland."
