In 2014, Craig Young suggested that he had the pace and bounce to fill the void left for Ireland by Boyd Rankin. He took five wickets on ODI debut, against Scotland, and was Ireland's top wicket-taker on the World Cup acclimatisation tour in Australia and New Zealand, suggesting that he had the tools to be an asset in the World Cup.

Cricket Ireland had particular reason to feel pleased with Young's progress. After a frustrating stint at Sussex - a mixture of injuries and second XI cricket - Young was offered a Cricket Ireland contract at the start of 2014, and seemed fitter and stronger as the year went on. He also benefited from working with the former Australia Test bowler Craig McDermott during the winter of 2013/14. Young is a useful lower-order hitter fond of clattering the ball to midwicket.
