Default ex-captain Taibu quits cricket aged 29

Tatenda Taibu quits cricket

The decision ends an 11-year international career, during which he became the youngest Test captain in history.

Taibu played 28 Tests and 150 ODIs for Zimbabwe and has quit aged only 29, usually a cricketer's prime. The decision comes as even more of a surprise as he was named in Zimbabwe's provisional squad for the World Twenty20 in September.

He might have the stature of Mushfiqur Rahim but he was a more versatile, resilient cricketer than Rahim. I remember a few years back, after the player exodus and right before going into Test exile, he was the only Zim player who would put up a fight. I think there was one match where he kept wickets, batted and bowled and did all pretty well!

I think Rahim is a more solid, versatile, and ultimately valuable batsman...probably a poorer keeper.

Default Tatenda Taibu quits cricket for church aged 29

Tatenda Taibu quits cricket for church aged 29

Quote:
Tatenda Taibu, the Zimbabwe wicketkeeper-batsman, has announced his retirement, stating that he wants to focus on working for the church. Taibu played 28 Tests and 150 ODIs for Zimbabwe and has quit aged only 29, usually a cricketer's prime.
The decision comes as even more of a surprise as, earlier in the day, he was named in Zimbabwe's provisional squad for September's World Twenty20. It ends an 11-year international career, during which he became the youngest Test captain in history. A finger injury kept him out of top-flight cricket since the tour of New Zealand early this year.



"I just feel that my true calling now lies in doing the Lord's work," Taibu said, "and although I am fortunate and proud to have played for my country, the time has come for me to put my entire focus on that part of my life."
