England bowler Anya Shrubsole, a key a part of England’s 2017 World Cup triumph, has retired from the international game.
The 30-year-old performed 173 video games for her nation throughout all codecs, claiming 227 wickets.
She took six wickets in England’s dramatic World Cup remaining win over India at Lord’s in 2017.
“I feel immensely privileged to have been able to represent my country for the past 14 years,” stated Shrubsole.
“To have been involved in women’s cricket at a time of such growth has been an honour but it has become clear to me that it is moving forward faster than I can keep up with, so it is time for me to step away.
“There have been many ups and downs alongside the way in which however it was all price it to have the ability to carry the ICC Ladies’s World Cup at Lord’s in 2017.”
Clare Connor, the ECB’s managing director of women’s cricket, paid tribute to Shrubsole’s achievements since her debut against South Africa in August 2008.
“For 14 years she has given the whole lot for the group so it’s becoming that her causes for retiring are so selfless,” she stated.
“Her longevity, talent and impression with the brand new and previous ball are testomony to her work ethic and dedication over so a few years.”
