Andrew Roland White
Andy is presently Ireland’s most capped player still playing international cricket with 218 and is catching up on Ireland’s most capped player overall, his close friend Kyle McCallan who has 226 caps. Indeed the gap would be smaller still but for a peculiarity when Andy was first selected for Ireland. This was for a “Triple Crown” tournament. However all three matches ended in bowlouts (for which caps were not awarded) and though he took part in all the bowlouts, and Ireland won the trophy, he ended the tournament still an uncapped player.
His first cap, therefore, was against the Netherlands in July 2000 at Hamilton Crescent, Glasgow, in the European Championships held that year in Scotland. He took little time to make his mark, scoring his first century, 111, in his third match against Denmark, played at Uddingston.
In his 211 matches to date he has scored 4,229 runs, with 6 centuries, and in doing so has batted in every position except No.11! His highest century is 152* against the Netherlands in the Intercontinental Cup at Deventer in 2004. Indeed Andy seems to enjoy that competition very much as 4 of his 6 centuries have come in the Intercontinental Cup.
As a bowler he has taken 121 wickets with a best performance of 4-22 against Uganda in 2009. To finish his figures he has held 80 catches, second only to Kevin O’Brien’s 90.
Andy has played his domestic cricket in the Northern Cricket Union with North Down and latterly Instonians. He had a spell with Northamptonshire, though decided to return to teaching. Andy is a true all-rounder and continues to offer much to Ireland with bat, ball and in the field.
