English player Laura Marsh decided to retire from all forms of cricket at the age of 33.
Last December, Laura Marsh has retired from international cricket. With the cancellation of The Hundred this year due to COVID-19, she has also firmly decided that she is retiring even from domestic cricket at the age of 33.
On her Twitter account, Marsh said, ‘I have made the decision to retire from all forms of cricket. With the cancellation of The Hundred competition this year, I feel that it is the right time to hang up the boots. I want to say a huge thank you to all the teams and organisations I have represented over the years’.
‘I owe a huge amount to both Kent & Sussex for the role they played in my development as a player. Big thanks also to The Surrey Stars, Sydney Sixers, NSW Breakers and Otago Sparks. Every team I played for developed me as a player and a person and I am fortunate to have made some lifelong friends and memories over the years. I am excited for the next chapter and look forward to giving back to the game that has given me so much’, she added.
In the duration of her career, Marsh has picked up a total of 217 wickets across all formats as she has played a total of nine Tests, 103 ODIs, and 67 T20Is for England. To learn more about cricket formats, visit Betwala.
