Ireland seamer Boyd Rankin retires from cricket

Ireland pace bowler Boyd Rankin, who also played for England, has announced his retirement from international cricket and inter-pro duty, reports BBC. Derry-born Rankin played in 153 Ireland games in two stints between 2003 and 2020, either side of three years with England which included one Ashes Test. The Bready club-man also spent 15 years in English county cricket, including a lengthy spell at Warwickshire. “I feel now is the right time to step away,” said the 36-year-old. “I have put my heart and soul into playing cricket professionally since 2003 and have loved every minute of it.”
