Ireland playing Pakistan in a Twenty20 International at The Oval during the 2009 ICC World Twenty20

A Twenty20 International (T20I) is an international cricket match between two teams that have official ODI status, as determined by the International Cricket Council. It is played under the rules of Twenty20 cricket and is the shortest form of the game. The first such match was played on 17 February 2005 between Australia and New Zealand.[1] The Ireland cricket team played its first T20I match on 2 August 2008, against Scotland as part of the 2008 ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier, winning the match by 4 wickets.[2]

Ireland have won 18 of their 34 T20I matches.[3] William Porterfield is the current captain of the team and has captained Ireland in all 30 of their T20I matches.[4] Paul Stirling holds the record for the highest score by an Ireland player in T20I cricket, with 79 in a five wicket victory over Afghanistan in March 2012.[5] Porterfield is Ireland's leading run scorer in this format, making 516 from 33 innings, at an average of 17.20.[6] Trent Johnston has taken more wickets than any other Irish bowler in T20Is, dismissing 32 batsmen with an average of 19.87.[7]

This list comprises all members of the Ireland cricket team who have played at least one T20I match. It is initially arranged in the order in which each player won his first Twenty20 cap. Where more than one player won his first Twenty20 cap in the same match, those players are listed alphabetically by surname.
