Ireland need more matches - O'Brien

Ireland all-rounder Kevin O'Brien says he is frustrated by the team's lack of top-level fixtures as they prepare for Friday's one-day clash against England at Malahide, near Dublin.

That match and a Belfast encounter against Australia in August will be Ireland's only matches against full member teams this season.

Fellow Irish players John Mooney, Max Sorensen and Alex Cusack echoed O'Brien's concerns.
