Sarah Taylor, England's woman cricketer, could play for Sussex men's team

Sarah Taylor says Sussex contacted the women's national-team coach Mark Lane about using her next season. Former England seamer Mike Selvey, now a cricket correspondent at The Guardian, has suggested Taylor is the one woman whose skills as both a wicketkeeper and batsman could conceivably allow her to play first-class cricket.

London: England women's wicketkeeper Sarah Taylor is holding talks about the prospect of playing for Sussex's men's 2nd XI in the upcoming domestic season, The Guardian newspaper said on Monday.

Taylor, one of the leading players in international women's cricket, is set to travel to India later this week as a member of an England squad who will be defending the 50-over World Cup title they won in Australia.

The 23-year-old played her school cricket for Sussex-based Brighton College, where former pupils include ex-England women's captain Clare Connor.
