Cricket News:

Taylor made his international debut against Sri Lanka in 2004. His long 17 years career was a rollercoaster. He turned out to be the finest cricketer in the country. The 35-year-old scored 6677 runs in ODIs, 2320 runs in Tests, and 934 runs in T20Is. He has a chance to finish his international career as Zimbabwe’s highest run-scorer in ODIs. He needs only 111 runs to surpass Andy Flower, who ended his ODI career with 6786 runs in 213 matches.

Also, he was one of the top 5 batsmen at the quadrennial tournament. The former Zimbabwean captain moved away from international cricket and played for Nottinghamshire in county cricket as a Kolpak signing soon

Also, he was one of the top 5 batsmen at the quadrennial tournament. The former Zimbabwean captain moved away from international cricket and played for Nottinghamshire in county cricket as a Kolpak signing soon after the World Cup campaign.

Though he returned as Zimbabwe captain earlier this year bidding adieu to the international cricket today, that too just a few weeks before the T20 World Cup.

Taylor’s thoughts on his retirement:

Taylor took social media to express his thoughts on retirement, “It’s with a heavy heart that I’m announcing that tomorrow is my last game for my beloved country,” he wrote. “17 years of extreme highs and extreme lows and I wouldn’t change it for the world.”

He also wrote, “It’s taught me to be humble, to always remind myself how lucky I was to be in the position I was in for so long. To wear the badge with pride and leave everything on the field. My goal was to always leave the team in a better position as when I first arrived back in 2004, I hope I have done that.”
