Taylor is considered to be one of the best wicketkeepers in the game as well as a wonderfully attacking player with the bat on her day, there is no one better to watch. There was a talk of her representing the Sussex men’s 2nd XI, should injury and call-ups allow. It didn’t happen and it didn’t matter. An issue with anxiety saw Taylor take a break from cricket in May 2016. It was a break that did her the world of good and ultimately helped England win the ICC World cup in 2017.
It was the second major trophy that Taylor had won at Lord’s having won the ICC World T20 in 2009, and followed by the ICC World Cup in the same year. When it comes to awards, there aren’t many that Taylor hasn’t won and that includes the ICC Women’s ODI Cricketer of the Year in 2014 and the T20I award in 2012 and 2013.
