Profile

Kyle McCallan was a useful offspinner who demonstrated good ability with the bat. He took a wicket with his first delivery for Ireland against Wales and followed that by scoring a century in his next match. He then made a positive start to his ODI career with unbeaten scores of 46 and 50 against Scotland and the Netherlands - and his 4 for 35 in the second innings against Kenya in the 2005 Intercontinental Cup Final helped secure a memorable victory. He had been around the Ireland set-up for many years having played at various age group levels including being named Man of the Series in the Under-15 Interprovincial Series and was named Trent Johnston's deputy for the 2007 World Cup. It was a successful tournament for him, too, with 10 wickets at 23.30 and remained a valuable squad member until his retirement in 2009.
