Ireland all-rounder Kevin O'Brien returns to the squad as captain ahead of the three match one-day international series against Scotland next month.
O'Brien is one of four changes to the Ireland squad that suffered defeat last time out to Sri Lanka A. The other alterations see George Dockrell, Max Sorensen and John Mooney all included.
Normally a regular, O'Brien returns to the international scene following successful spells as a T20 specialist, featuring for T&T Red Steel in the Caribbean Premier League and Surrey in the NatWest T20 Blast.
The Ireland skipper said: “The focus now for the squad is very much geared towards World Cup preparation, and these three matches against Scotland are an important part of that.
“There are still places up for grabs and everyone’s working really hard to make sure they’re part of what’s sure to be a fantastic event.
“Scotland are ever improving over the last few years, and have a vibrant young squad mixed in with some experienced players, like Majid Haq and Richie Berrington.
"Like ourselves, they will be keen to use these games as preparation for the World Cup, but most importantly we both will be looking to win, so I expect these games to be tough and closely contested."
Ireland Squad: Kevin O’Brien (capt), John Anderson, Andrew Balbirnie, George Dockrell, John Mooney, Andrew McBrine, Graeme McCarter, Andrew Poynter, Stuart Poynter, Max Sorensen, Stuart Thompson, Andrew White, Craig Young.
