The cricketing world pays tribute to Anya Shrubsole after her retirement


Hit For Six!

Anya Shrubsole brought down the curtains on her glorious 14-year international career and the cricketing fraternity was effusive in its praise of the England superstar.

Shrubsole decided to call quits from international cricket but will continue to play domestic cricket. She ends her career with 106 wickets in 86 ODIs, 102 in 79 T20Is and 19 scalps from eight Tests including a career-best, match-winning 7/99 in the 2014 Ashes Test in Perth. She is the only England bowler to bag 100 wickets in both Women’s ODIs and T20Is.

Shrubsole last featured at the recently concluded 2022 ICC Women's Cricket World Cup in New Zealand, where she played a vital role in England's run to the final. She ended the tournament with 9 wickets at 29.66, with her best figures of 3/46 coming in the final against Australia. 

Shrubsole ends her career, winning the Cricket World Cup twice – in 2009 and 2017. She was the star of the show as England beat India in a thriller in the 2017 World Cup final at Lord's, ending up with figures of 6/46.
