Ireland's Joshua Little pulled out of the tour because of education commitments. Peter Chase was named as his replacement.[12] Boyd Rankin was ruled out of Ireland's T20I matches with a back injury. He was not fit to play in the ODI series, as he was still recovering from a lower back injury, with Tim Murtagh added to the squad as cover.[13] Rankin was later ruled out of the ODI series, with Peter Chase named as cover for him.[14]
