Profile

Brendan Taylor, a wicketkeeper-batsman and statistically one of the finest players that Zimbabwe has ever produced, abandoned Zimbabwe's international set-up when he played his final game against India in their last Group B game of the 2015 World Cup. Taylor, disillusioned with international cricket, signed a three-year Kolpak deal with Nottinghamshire which made him ineligible to play for Zimbabwe while that contract is in effect. He made his decision slightly open-ended, not entirely ruling out the possibility that he might one day return to the fold. And he did just that.
