Ireland s O Brien retires from international cricket

Ireland wicketkeeper-batsman Niall O Brien announced on Friday that he is retiring from international and first-class cricket after a 16-year career. The 36-year-old, who made his international debut against Denmark in 2002, played 216 times for Ireland and appeared in his nation s first-ever Test, against Pakistan, in May this year. O Brien opted for the number 72 shirt to mark his match-winning score in Ireland s famous win against Pakistan at the 2007 World Cup. His county career included spells with Kent, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire. It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing my retirement from international and professional cricket, said O Brien, who has played much of his career alongside his younger brother Kevin. I have been blessed to have been lucky enough to have represented my country for 16 years with plenty more ups than downs and for this I look back with nothing but smiles and laughter. Cricket Ireland performance director Richard Holdsworth said O Brien
