One of the most naturally talented players England have produced, Sarah Taylor burst on to the scene in 2006 with a run-a-ball 61 in her fourth ODI against India and a maiden century followed early the next year against Australia in Chennai.
She was part of the England sides which won the World Cup and World T20 double in 2009 and has played in five Ashes contests although a Test high score of 40 does not do her justice.
Lightning-fast behind the stumps - she has claimed some incredible dismissals standing up - Taylor kept out Brighton College's male keeper in for a spot in their first team and there was much interest in 2013 when it was suggested that she could appear for Sussex 2nd XI. That did not eventuate, but she made her debut in senior men's cricket for Walmley, in the Birmingham Premier League, later that year and has since gone on to play grade cricket in Australia.
