England Cricketer Sarah Taylor Retires Due to Anxiety Issues
Wicketkeeper Sarah Taylor has made 226 appearances for England since 2006, scoring 6,533 runs
One of England's most successful female cricket players has retired from the international game at the age of 30 because of anxiety issues.
Wicketkeeper Sarah Taylor has made 226 appearances for England since 2006, scoring 6,533 runs – second on the country's all-time list for women – and having a record 232 dismissals across all three formats
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”.
