England cricketer Sarah Taylor could make history in men’s county match
Donald McRae writing for The Guardian:
Sarah Taylor, the England wicketkeeper, has revealed that she is in talks to play men’s second XI county cricket this summer in what would be a groundbreaking move for women’s sport.
Taylor, widely regarded as one of the best female cricketers in history, has an informal agreement with the coaching staff at Sussex that if their second team needs a wicketkeeper at short notice this year, she will be selected to play.
So just an alternate; no guarantee that she’ll play. But it would be really neat if she does!
