Katherine Brunt, the veteran England pacer, announced her retirement from Test cricket on Saturday, June 18, while she will remain available for selection in the limited overs formats. Brunt, who played 14 Tests in her career, finished with 51 wickets at an average of 21.52, with three five-wicket hauls.
She concludes her journey in the purest format as the third highest wicket-taker for England and is one among only 10 bowlers to bag 50 wickets or more in Women’s Tests. She last featured in the solitary Ashes Test earlier this year in Canberra, returning a tally of eight wickets including a fifer in the first innings.
Two bits of Brunty brilliance in the Test arena!
