Cricket – International Caps Record

Congratulations to Grosvenor teacher and Irish international cricketer Mr Andrew White who passed a significant landmark during the summer in becoming Ireland’s most capped player of all time.

Andrew’s selection to face Sri Lanka at Stormont in July saw him secure a remarkable 227th international cap, making him not only Ireland’s most capped cricketer, but also its most selected sportsman of all time.  Perhaps even more remarkable is the fact that Andrew’s 227th cap saw him eclipse a record that had previously been held - for the past nine years - by fellow Grosvenor teacher, and former Ireland captain, Mr Kyle McCallan

Andrew’s Ireland debut came in 2000, since when he has participated at two World Cups – in 2007 in the West Indies, and in 2011 in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.  In addition Andrew has competed in three T20 World Cups and helped Ireland to four Intercontinental Cup triumphs.  At the end of this month he will also embark on a four week tour of Australia and New Zealand as Ireland continue their build-up to the 2015 World Cup.

All at Grosvenor commend Andrew on his stellar, record-breaking International career and wish him the best of luck throughout the remainder of his cricketing career.
