The England and Wales Cricket Board said "in recent years Taylor's anxiety has affected her ability to enjoy the game, and it is for that reason that she has decided to step away from the international arena."

Taylor in a tweet wrote, “In 2006 my dream came true and I beam with pride at what I've achieved over the years, alongside the best players and people. It is the right time for me and my health to retire, but I have loved every minute in an England shirt. Thank you to everyone for supporting me”.
