Profile

Lorcan Tucker, born on 10th September 1996, is an Irish wicketkeeper-batsman. He is a secure wicketkeeper behind the stumps with a classical technique, and an explosive, well-built batsman. He has underperformed with the willow, with an average of just under 29 in first-class cricket, and just two half-centuries in ten matches. In his T20I appearances, he has had a limited few opportunities to bat, and hasn't been able to pull off any cameos of note either. However, his first-class antics have given selectors the confidence that he can be utilised as a pinch-hitter down the order.

He started out playing junior cricket, and was selected in the Ireland squad for the 2016 Under-19 World Cup. He made his T20I debut against Hong Kong in September 2016. He made his List A debut for Leinster Lightning in the 2017 Inter-Provincial Cup on 4 June 2017. He made his first-class debut for Leinster Lightning in the 2017 Inter-Provincial Championship in June 2017.

In January 2017, he was called up as an injury replacement for Stuart Thompson for Ireland's squad in the 2017 Desert T20 Challenge. In January 2019, he was named in Ireland's T20I squad for the Oman Quadrangular Series. He was also named in Ireland's Test, One Day International (ODI) and T20I squads for their series against Afghanistan in India in 2019. With age on his side, given that he is only 22, he is likely to become a strong contendor for the national side if he improves his consistency in terms of batting performances.
