Terry Turns Orange but Without the Chocolate!

A name that I was not expecting to see when scouring scorecards across the globe this morning was… Sean Terry but guess who’s rocked up for Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash?

I previously posted about Terry’s ‘retirement’…

but it turns out that he’s been representing Melville in Grade Cricket down under. He’s been doing mightily well too, stepping up in some big games and thus earned an outing for the franchise from the West. Terry made only four in the Perth side’s final match of the campaign…

so what the future holds remains to be seen.

Ireland travel to England later this year for their first overseas Test. Could Terry gatecrash England’s Ashes prep as he has the Big Bash?

Time’s up for Terry!

Ireland batsman Sean Terry has announced his retirement from all forms of the game with immediate effect. The former Hampshire batsman had most recently represented Leinster Lightning in his adopted home and made fourteen in his final innings. That score summed up Terry’s campaign, often getting in but not going on. Aged 26, a top score of 73 with no century insight across all formats (First Class, List A and T20) is underwhelming, particularly for a specialist batsman. Terry played for Ireland in one T20I, scoring just four and averaged only 6.40 from five ODI outings. Like his father Paul who averaged just 5.33 from two Tests for England, son Sean will look back on his international career with frustration. Both had the honour of representing their county or a country however (Sean was born in England/Paul in Germany) and they should be proud to have worn their respective jerseys.
