England’s all-rounder retires from International cricket

33-year-old England women cricket team all-rounder, Jenny Gunn has announced her retirement from international cricket. Since her debut in 2004, she has played 259 matches for England across all three formats. For the last time she entered the field for England was against West Indies in June.

"I have made one of the hardest decisions and decided the time has come to retire from international cricket. I started as a young kid playing the game I loved for fun and I could only dream of becoming a professional cricketer," Gunn stated.

Further she added "I've been lucky enough to play in some great teams and to be part of some amazing battles over the years, but as a small girl I always said I wanted to put a World Cup medal next to my dad's European Cup winner's medal, and there are now three of them next to his on the mantelpiece."

Jenny has been the part of winning team of T20 World Cup 2009, the 2009 and 2017 World cup and most importantly Ashes series (five times). She also served as the Vice-Captain of England team from 2010-2014.

"Jenny has been the most tremendous servant to England women's cricket throughout the 15 years she has played," said Clare Connor, the ECB's managing director of women's cricket.
