Sarah Taylor

Lightning-fast glovework and eye-catching leg-side stumpings, Sarah Taylor has set the standard for wicketkeepers in world cricket throughout the last decade.

In 2006, she became the fastest cricketer, male or female, to earn their first cap in all three formats of international cricket, doing so in the space of nine days against India.

It was 2007 that Sarah really made her mark, with a maiden century ODI against Australia. A year later she became the youngest female cricketer to score 1,000 runs in ODI cricket.

Sarah played a key role in England’s 50 Over World Cup and T20 World Cup double in 2009, and the home World Cup win in 2017 where she produced key innings of 54 (v SA in the semi) and 45 (India in the final).

On 30 June 2009, Sarah’s 120 in the 2nd ODI against Australia was the highest individual score against Australia by an Englishwoman.

She was named ICC Women's T20I Cricketer of the Year in 2012, scoring 340 runs and claiming 7 stumpings and 4 catches. She then repeated the feat in 2013 after top scoring with 422 runs at an average of 42.20, scoring three half-centuries in the process.

In 2014 Sarah was named ICC Women's ODI Cricketer of the Year for scoring 361 runs, as well as helping England to win the 2013–14 Women's Ashes.

In February 2022 Sarah was appointed assistant coach at The Hundred’s Manchester Originals and has yet to rule out a return to playing.
