Sarah Taylor set to play county cricket

5:54 pm on 15 January 2013

The England women's cricket team's wicketkeeper Sarah Taylor says she's in discussions to play men's second Eleven county cricket later this year.

Taylor, who is about to play in the Women's World Cup in India, is hoping to play for the Sussex second eleven at some point during the 2013 season.

A number of the England women's team play regular men's club cricket.

Taylor is regarded as one of the finest women cricketers of all time. She averages 39.42 from 71 one-day internationals including four hundreds and has a strike-rate of 112 from her 46 Twenty20s.

In 2011, Taylor's England team-mate Arran Brindle became the first woman to score a hundred in men's Premier League cricket as she hit 128 for Louth in the Lincolnshire League.
