Former England International star Sarah Taylor will be making a comeback with Welsh Fire for the inaugural season of The Hundred.
Taylor made 226 appearances for England, including 10 Tests, 126 One-Day and 90 T20 games, before retiring from international cricket in 2019 after battling with anxiety.
“There’s been a real buzz about The Hundred, and especially the women’s competition,” Taylor said in an England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) statement.
“We’ve got the best players from around the world involved, and the temptation to be part of it was too great to resist. I’m so excited at the prospect of playing again.”
The inaugural season of the Franchise league will begin on July 21 with Oval Invincibles meeting Manchester Originals.
