Sarah withdrew from Ashes T20Is due to mental health
Sarah Taylor has been facing problems of late and also pulled herself out of the Ashes T20Is to manage her mental health. Speaking about the same, the 30-year-old had cleared that she hasn’t taken the break due to anxiety issues and she has come a long way in that aspect.
“I first took a break from the game in 2016. But I don’t want people to feel this is exactly the same. I’ve made progress in that time and there are plenty of challenges I’ve met on the way and hurdles I’ve overcome. That said, mental health is not something you ‘beat’. It’s a continual management process and at the moment I don’t feel in a good enough place to compete in international sport,” Sarah Taylor said according to ECB’s press release.
