England all-rounder Laura Marsh on Thursday announced her retirement from all forms of cricket. Laura cited the reason for the delay in the inaugural edition of the “Hundred”.
The 33-year-old was supposed to represent Oval Invincibles in the highly anticipated tournament but it was postponed to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This forced the all-rounder to call quits from the game and infact, from all forms of the game. Marsh also took to her Twitter to announce her retirement as she posted:
“I have made the decision to retire from all forms of cricket. With the cancellation of The Hundred competition this year, I feel that it is the right time to hang up the boots. I want to say a huge thank you to all the teams and organisations I have represented over the years,”
Later she also thanked all teams she played for in her entire career, including her domestic cricket team and WBBL team Sydney Sixers.
The former all-rounder had been one of the mains for the England women’s team as played 9 Tests, 103 ODIs and 67 T20Is and took 207 wickets. With the bat, she managed to score 1588 runs in her across all the formats.
