ANDREW WHITE has announced his retirement from international cricket with immediate effect.

The 34 year-old, his country's most capped player with 231 appearances, has called time on his career after a serious finger injury ended his hopes of appearing at a third World Cup.

"It is with a heavy heart that I am retiring from representing Ireland on the International stage," said White. "Over the last 15 years I have poured my heart and soul into Irish Cricket and to play a part in undoubtedly one of the great success stories of Irish sport has been an incredible experience.

"It had been my ambition to finish my International career at the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in the coming weeks, however, suffering a compound fracture of my right index finger in September meant that this was unfortunately not going to be possible."
