Boyd Rankin was born on 5 July 1984 at Londonderry . He is a tall (6'7") right arm fast bowler who made his first class debut for Ireland against UAE in 2007 .

He is noted for an explosive entry in the 2007 World Cup as he helped Ireland down Pakistan and Bangadesh and progress through to the Super 8 round.
