Top Zimbabwean cricketer, Brendan Taylor is heading back home after leaving the Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club.

The club has confirmed that Taylor (31) has asked and been granted permission to be released from his contract – due to expire at the end of the 2017 season – for family reasons. 

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Trent Bridge where I have made some fantastic friends among the dressing room and Club staff during the three seasons I have been here,” said Taylor.
“Winning two trophies for Notts in these past few months, including one at Lord’s, has been a real highlight in my career, and given me moments that I will never forget.

“But being away from my wife and children has proven to be very difficult for me and I have reached a point in my life where I must consider their needs.”

Harare-born Taylor first joined Nottinghamshire for the start of the 2015 season and became the first batsman in the Club’s history to register centuries in both of his first two matches, against Loughborough University and Middlesex.
