In an official statement released by Ireland Cricket, Porterfield said, “It is an honor to represent my country for 16 years. This is something I wanted to do since childhood.” I’ve gone from being an amateur team to a Test nation by now… all I wanted to do was leave the shirt in a better place and leave the team in a better place, and hopefully, I’ve played a part In doing so,” he said. Porterfield will take on a coaching role with Gloucestershire. He last played an international in January at Sabina Park in Jamaica.

That ground holds a lot of memories for me, right from Pakistan’s victory in 2007 to beating the West Indies from the ground in January 2 – 1,” he said. Current Ireland captain Andrew Balbirnie said Porterfield “would be a huge loss.” “It’s a huge loss when an absolute pillar of the game demands time on his career. William has been a wonderful man. In the dressing room, as a player and as a person. So much for this current Irish team.” All the foundations were laid, which was done by him and the teams that came before us,” Balberni said.
