Zimbabwe's star batsman Brendan Taylor has chosen to call his retirement after the third one day global among Zimbabwe and Ireland, which will be hung on Monday. 

Taylor has been a piece of the Zimbabwe cricket crew for a very long time and is one of the most improved and perceived batsmen of the country. In the 204 matches he addressed Zimbabwe, he scored 6677 runs with a normal of 35.70, scoring 39 half hundreds of years and 11 centuries. To turn into the most run scorer for Zimbabwe in ODIs, he is barely shy of Andy Flower, who is ahead by 110 runs. Taylor actually has one match close by to arrive at that achievement.

Taylor has been a part of the Zimbabwe cricket team for 17 years and is one of the most decorated and recognized batsmen of the nation. In the 204 matches he represented Zimbabwe, he scored 6677 runs with an average of 35.70, scoring 39 half centuries and 11 centuries. To become the most run scorer for Zimbabwe in ODIs, he is just short of Andy Flower, who is ahead by 110 runs. Taylor still has one match in hand to reach that milestone.

In his goodbye message, Brendan Taylor said thanks to Zimbabwe Cricket, his partners and his fans, saying that he could always remember any of them. 

“Thank you for the opportunity, and I hope I have made our country proud in some small way. To my teammates and coaches past and present. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will never forget you all. To the fans back home who have been so loyal to me over the years."

"I'm eternally grateful. To my friends at home, my parents and my best mates my two brothers who have been with me every step of the way. Thank you so much,” the former Zimbabwe captain further wrote.

Brendan Taylor likewise made a move to offer thanks towards his better half and his children. 

“Finally to my wife @tkellyanne and our four beautiful boys. You have meant everything to me on this journey, and it wouldn't have been possible without you. No more airport heartaches. I look forward to our next chapter. I love you all very much,” the cricketer concluded.
