James Taylor announces retirement from international cricket


Life can be mean at times and James Taylor can tell you lots more about that. He has been going through a tough phase of his life. He has had to give up doing what he has loved. All thanks to the rare heart disease that he has been diagnosed with. He backed out from a University game once he got to know and soon after let the world know. He has been diagnosed with  ARVC (Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy).

James Taylor is only 25 years of age. He made his debut for England in 2011. After few failures, he had to prove himself again for a comeback and so he did. He was a critical part of England in the 2015 World cup as well.

Myself and all of James” team-mates and colleagues are terribly sad to hear this news, which comes as a big shock to us all,” Mick Newell, Nottinghamshire”s director of cricket, said. “He is a model professional, the most hard-working I”ve ever known in cricket, making it all the more difficult to accept that his career has been cut short in this way.

“It goes without saying that he has the very best wishes of us all in terms of recovering from his operation, and that we are looking forward to seeing him back at Trent Bridge when he is fit and able.”

Muamba offered his support to Taylor over Twitter: “Having life is a great option. Retirement is inevitable but for some of us it”s just earlier than expected. Enjoy life,” he posted.

The board also expressed their shock and have handed out to him. He will soon be undergoing a surgery to treat his condition
