Ireland’s pace bowler Max Sorenson has decided to retire from international cricket after battling with shoulder injury that kept him out for a long duration of time. He played 13 ODIs and 26 T20s for Ireland during his playing career at the top level. His first class record has been excellent as he has taken 28 wickets with best figures against Scotland. He last played for Ireland in June 2016. He was part of the Ireland squad that participated in the ICC T20 World Cup 2016.
Sorenson clearly stated that his injury has made it difficult to continue playing international cricket. He said he was fortunate enough to realize childhood dream of representing his country Ireland at the international level. The continuous injuries and inconsistent performances also did not help as he decided to quit the game once and for all.
He appreciated the Ireland Cricket Board for all their support and help during this time. Ireland Head Coach John Bracewell showered praise at Sorenson of being a very professional cricket with a lot of talent. Bracewell said that Sorenson will always be remembered of being a tireless worker who always gave his all when playing for Ireland at the international level.
