Profile

A solid right-hand bat and, at the start of her career, a wicketkeeper too, Claire Taylor read maths at Oxford, where, in addition to playing cricket, she captained the hockey team. She also represented England's hockey team at U-17 and U-19 levels, but it was as a cricketer that she really prospered and though she made a slow start to her international career, but by the time she retired in July 2011 she had firmly established herself as one of England's premier batsmen in all formats.
