Brendan Taylor retires from international cricket

Zimbabwe veteran cricketer Brendan Taylor has announced his retirement from international cricket.

He took to social media to share a note about his retirement. He wrote-

“It’s with a heavy heart that I’m announcing that tomorrow is my last game for my beloved country. 17 years of extreme highs and extreme lows and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
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 to when I first arrived back in 2004, I hope I have done that.

I’m so thankful for the friendships I’ve gain around the world, you will always be with me and I hope to cross paths again in the near future.

To Zimbabwe Cricket.
Thank you for the opportunity and I hope I have made our country proud in some small way.”

He is one of the mainstays in the team, scoring 6677 runs from 204 ODI matches including 11 tons. He also has 2320 runs from 24 Test matches and 934 runs from 45 T20Is.
