🇬🇧England batsman James Taylor has called time on his cricketing career prematurely😱 after being diagnosed with a serious heart condition. Taylor's condition is similar to that of former Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba who retired from football⚽ after collapsing on the field during a match against Tottenham at the age of 24😯. Taylor will undergo an operation😳 in the coming days for his condition called ARVC (Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy) which carries a risk of sudden death due to exertion😳. England team director Andrew Strauss said🔈, "It is both shocking and saddening to hear that James' career has been cut short in such a sudden and unexpected manner". The 26-year-old Taylor has played in 7 Tests for England and also featured in 27 ODIs, including the 2015 World Cup🏆.
Get well soon, James. Our prayers🙏 are with you.
