London: England wicket-keeper batswoman Sarah Taylor on Friday announced her retirement from the international cricket.
“This has been a tough decision but I know it’s the right one, for me and for my health moving forward. I can’t thank my teammates enough, both past and present, and the ECB for being supporters and friends along my journey,” said Taylor in an England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) statement.
The 30-year-old made her England debut in 2006 and has gone on to make 226 appearances, earning a reputation as one of the world’s finest players. Talking about her cricketing career, she said: “Playing for England and getting to wear the shirt for so long has been a dream come true.” “I have been blessed with so many great moments throughout my career. From making my debut in 2006 to Ashes wins, and of course, the World Cup final at Lord’s, to name just a few,” she said.
She has scored 6,533 runs across all formats – second on England women’s all-time list of run-scorers. In addition, she will be remembered for her work behind the stumps.
“I’ve also been blessed with travelling the world and making lifelong friends along the way. To be right in the thick of women’s cricket as it’s gone from strength to strength – not only in England but across the world – has been an amazing experience, and I can look back on what women’s cricket has achieved with great pride at playing some small part in it,” she added.
