Dublin: Lucy O'Reilly is in line to become the second youngest cricketer to play a women's international match after being called into Ireland's squad on Monday for their World Twenty20 qualifiers later this month.

The 13-year-old is an all-rounder with the Women's 1st XI of Dublin's YMCA club and the daughter of former Ireland international Peter O'Reilly.

She was one of 14 players selected in Ireland's squad for the global qualifying event, which will see the hosts competing alongside seven other countries for the three remaining places on offer for next year's World Twenty20, set to take place in Bangladesh.
