Boyd Rankin

Irish pacer Boyd Rankin is back in the Irish cricketing circles and will be representing the country of his birth soon. Rankin, who made his debut for Ireland, had switched to England a couple of years ago. Rankin was also a part of the English side that was thrashed 5-0 by Australia during the 2013/14 Ashes Down Under.

Confirming his return to Ireland, Rankin said, “I’m delighted to be returning to Irish cricket, where I was born and learned the game.” “I’ll always be grateful to England for the chance to play Test cricket, but with little opportunities in the last two years, I felt it was time to move on at this stage of my career.”

 

Stressing on his commitment to Irish cricket, Rankin said, “There’s a real opportunity for Ireland to get Test status now, and that prospect was a real lure for me – I’d love to be part of history. Before that of course there’s a T20 World Cup in India – I’ve played in three before with Ireland and it’d be great to make it four. “I’ve also very happy memories of both the 2007 and 2011 50-over World Cups in the West Indies and India, and I’d like to make it a hat-trick of appearances in 2019 in England.”
