SURREY'S SECOND eleven wicketkeeper Gary Wilson has temporarily swapped The Oval for slightly warmer climes as he helped his international side reach the final of the ICC Intercontinental Cup.
The promising 22-year-old flew out to Africa a fortnight ago as part of the Ireland squad who faced Namibia and Kenya in their bid to qualify for the final of the four-day tournament later this month.
And despite not being selected for the side, Wilson was celebrating as two dramatic victories in tough conditions took the Irish through to the final in Port Elizabeth, South Africa on October 30.
With one-day games coming up against Zimbabwe and Kenya on the tour before they face Namibia again in the final, Wilson still has a chance to force his way into the team.
The Belfast native made his one-day international debut for Ireland in a game against India last summer and is expected to push Jon Batty for a place in Surrey's starting XI next year.
