Zim's Moor targets Ireland call-up

HARARE - Zimbabwean all-rounder PJ Moor has set his sights on an Ireland call-up following his latest spell in that country’s domestic league.

The 22-year-old from Harare reportedly qualified for the ICC Associate member country in January.

Moor, who captained Zimbabwe at the Under-19 World Cup in 2010, last month joined Irish club Belmont for a second spell, expecting to press claims for NSU Knights and Ireland Development squads.

At Belmont, Moor will also work alongside new club captain and youth development officer Taimur Khan, and club coaches Michael Hingston and Phil Smith, on the coaching end.

If Moor goes on the play for Ireland, he will follow in the footsteps of former Zimbabwe youth internationals Colin de Grandhomme and Gary Ballance, who have also switched allegiance to their adopted countries.

De Grandhomme has been capped by New Zealand in the limited overs while Ballance is on the verge of earning an England call-up. - Sports Writer
