Barry McCarthy was selected to play for Durham after English all-rounder Ben Stokes had been impressed by McCarthy, facing him in the nets.

Barry McCarthy was born on 13 September 1993. He has represented Ireland in the U-15 and U-19 teams. He made his first appearance in the international circuit in an ODI match against Sri Lanka in 2016. He then debuted in T20I in 2017 against Afghanistan. Ever since he has been a regular member of the playing XI in ODIs and T20Is. He is yet to debut in the Test format.

Barry McCarthy has been showing impressive results in ODIs with 55 wickets taken in only 30 matches and him being one of the eight players to take 50 wickets for the Ireland team. He performed brilliantly in the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers and the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced him a rising star of the Ireland team. In January 2020, he was awarded a full-time contract by Cricket Ireland. He is an exciting-to-watch fast bowler and will definitely impress everyone with his further performances.
