Vastly experienced Ireland international Niall O’Brien has been a consistent performer since signing for Leicestershire. The wicket-keeper/batsman scored almost 1,200 runs in all competitions in his first full season and then narrowly missed out on 1,000 LV=CC runs last summer.

His efforts led him to being named Leicestershire’s Cricketer of the Year, while a superb century led the team to a thrilling RL50 win at Hampshire. That innings saw him win the award for best individual performance in the First XI.

O’Brien has been Leicestershire’s second leading LV=CC scorer in both seasons at the Club. He has also been a good performer in one-day cricket and is a very safe pair of his hands behind the stumps, taking plenty of catches off the seamers while also demonstrating quick hands when standing up.

By the end of the 2014 season, O’Brien had scored 7,203 first-class runs at an average of 36.01 with a career-best score of 182. The keeper had also claimed 412 first-class dismissals and scored more than 4,000 runs in List A cricket. O'Brien has racked up nearly 2000 runs in T20 cricket.

O’Brien has played in five World Cups in both forms of the one-day game and will be hoping to play in his sixth, in Australia and New Zealand, early next year.
