Jenny Gunn Retires from International Cricket

The England all rounder played in different formats and cricket leagues since 2004

England all-rounder Jenny Gunn retires from playing international cricket. She is the second most capped England player in women’s cricket. For the past 15 years of her career, she played 259 international matches. 

Gunn made her debut in February 2004 during a match against South Africa. In the same year, she made her Test and T20I debut. She served as the team’s vice-captain for limited-overs from 2010 to 2014. 

‘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 said.

‘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 medal on the mantelpiece!’, she added.

Gunn thanked her family, fans, and friends who supported her throughout her career. As her career came to an end, she is the third-highest wicket-taker in T20I. She is also the second-highest wicket-taker in ODI.
