Playing Role

Wicketkeeper Batter

Wicketkeeper-batter Lorcan Tucker, who was among Ireland's first batch of contracted cricketers, made his international debut in 2016, before he played his first first-class game the following year. His father and brothers also played the game; Tucker and his younger brother Fiachra both figured in the 2016 Ireland Under=19 World Cup squad.

Tucker's first international fifty came in 2019, against Zimbabwe in an ODI home series where Ireland whitewashed the visitors. He also shone in Ireland's T20I series against USA in Lauderhill in 2021, holding his side together in an unsuccessful chase of 189 with 57 not out, and then making 84 in the series decider for a win.

In the T20 World Cup in 2022, Tucker was Ireland's top scorer. He made 71 not out against Australia in an innings where his team's next-highest score was 14, an unbeaten 45 in an impressive chase against West Indies that Ireland won, and 34 to set England a target that they failed to reach.

The T20 leagues came calling soon and Tucker signed for MI Emirates in the ILT20 and Trinbago Knight Riders in the CPL, but it was in Test cricket that Tucker started most impressively. On his debut, in 2023, he made a fighting hundred from No. 7 after Ireland collapsed to 51 for 5 in the second innings against Bangladesh in Mirpur, though they eventually lost. That was the first of four scores of over 40 in his first nine innings in Tests for Tucker.
