Billcliff withdraws from final
Ian Billcliff has become the second Canada player to withdraw from the Intercontinental Cup final against Ireland. He was unable to obtain leave from his job, and will be replaced by Sundeep Jyoti for the tie at Grace Road, Leicesteshire, which starts on May 22.
His absence is a blow – he scored a century in the the group matches. Ashish Patel also had to withdraw through work commitments and was replaced by Henry Osinde.
