Saying goodbye to his international cricket career, Anya Shrubsole said, “I am very fortunate to have been able to represent my country (England) for 14 years. It was a great honour to be involved in women’s cricket during the development of women’s cricket. But it is clear to me that I cannot keep pace with the times. So now is the time to stop. ”
She is the first female cricketer to lead the England women’s cricket team once and was featured on the cover of Wisden in 2016.
Anya Shrubsole said she had never dreamed of playing international cricket for the English for so many years. “I never dreamed I would be so lucky to have played cricket for England for so many years,” she said.

At the end of the day, Anya Shrubsole thanked everyone who supported her throughout her career.
“Many have come out in support throughout my career, and I want to thank them for what they have done for me. But without the support of my family, I could do nothing. They were with me every step of the way, and naturally, I could do nothing without them. ”

So this is the right time. As far as I know, Aniya loves cricket the most, and we look forward to seeing her skills in the next chapter. ”
