Marshall move for Ireland :
Former New Zealand international Hamish Marshall is looking to return to international cricket with Ireland as both a player and coach.
31-year-old Marshall has not played for the Black Caps since the 2007 World Cup and has been playing in English county cricket as a Kolpak player.
The Gloucestershire middle-order batsman already holds an Irish passport and would be eligible to play for Ireland from April 2011, subject to approval from the International Cricket Council.
Marshall turned down a New Zealand contract for the 2007-08 season in order to play county cricket, but he now wants to return to the international arena with Ireland.
