Sarah Taylor

'Lightning behind the stumps' – peers remember the best of Sarah Taylor

England Women news

Sarah Taylor, hailed by Adam Gilchrist as the best wicket-keeper in the world – male or female, announced her retirement from international cricket on Friday, 27 September. Tributes flowed in from around the world for the England star.

It was a chance to remember her many moments of brilliance behind the stumps – the leg-side stumpings, the catches at slip nearly and the lightning fast run-outs. Not to forget her excellent batting, with the cheeky paddles and scoops.

Her team-mates made it known she'd be missed.

Fellow wicket-keepers didn't hide their admiration. Taylor, for her part, said she expected Jos Buttler to carry on the tradition of thwarting a reverse sweep!

Praises came from her international opponents too, with Poonam Yadav pointing out that she would indeed go down in history as a legend.
