West Indies fast bowler Ravi Rampaul has been signed to appear as an overseas player for the Ireland national squad.

The Trinidadian is expected to appear in next weekend’s Friends Provident Trophy double-header away to Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.

The 23 year old has taken 25 wickets in 30 One-Day Internationals for the West Indies.

He is likely to be a straight swap for Andre Botha, who is struggling with an elbow and ankle problem.
