The next big thing in irish cricket, Harry Tector

  • Harry Tector climbs ICC ODI batting rankings, surpassing top players.
  • Tector’s heroics not enough as Ireland loses series 0-2.
  • Ireland’s highest run-scorer, Tector’s outstanding performance in vain.

Ireland’s Harry Tector, an impressive batter, has left renowned players such as Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Steve Smith, Jos Buttler, and Virat Kohli behind in the latest ICC ODI batting rankings. Tector has achieved the highest rating points ever recorded by an Ireland batter, propelling him into the top ten. With a remarkable tally of 722 points, he surpasses the previous record held by Paul Stirling (697 points in June 2021).

Tector’s outstanding performances with the bat during the recent three-match ODI series against Bangladesh have catapulted him up the rankings. The 23-year-old right-hander gained a significant 72 rating points and rose an impressive nine places to secure the seventh position. Notably, he emerged as the leading run-scorer of the series, amassing 206 runs at an impressive average of 103 in three innings. His standout performance came in the second ODI, where he showcased his brilliance with a magnificent knock of 140 off just 113 deliveries. His innings included seven boundaries and ten towering sixes.

Ireland’s captain, Andy Balbirnie, was full of praise for Tector, expressing confidence in his potential to become one of the legends of Irish Cricket. Balbirnie stated, “He possesses all the attributes to emerge as one of the greats of Irish cricket, and I hope that we can support him in his journey while he continues to accumulate runs for us. The more runs he scores, the stronger our team will become,” as quoted by Hindustan Times.

However, despite Tector’s heroics, Ireland’s efforts were in vain as they succumbed to a 0-2 defeat in the three-match series, with the first game being washed out. Tector’s brilliant innings of 140 guided Ireland to a competitive total of 319/6 in the second ODI. Nevertheless, Bangladesh successfully chased down the target, taking a 1-0 lead in the series. In the third ODI, Ireland came agonizingly close to chasing down Bangladesh’s 274, falling just five runs short and finishing on 269/9 after their allocated 50 overs.
