Sarah Taylor announced her retirement from the International cricket on Friday and put an end to her 13-year career for the England Women.

She was also part of the inaugural Women’s T20 CWC edition in 2009 which England won at home. Taylor featured in 226 International matches and affected 227 dismissals alongside scoring 6533 runs with seven hundreds and 36 half-centuries.
