After leading the Ireland team through a successful era, former Ireland captain William Porterfield announced his retirement from international cricket on Thursday, calling time on a 16-year career.

He was appointed as Ireland captain in 2008 and led his team over 250 times.

"It's been an honour to represent my country for 16 years. It's something I had always wanted to do since I was a child," Porterfield said in an official statement released by Ireland Cricket.

Andrew Balbirnie, the current Ireland captain, said Porterfield would be "a huge loss."
