England wicketkeeper Sarah Taylor will miss the women’s World Twenty20 in November due to anxiety issues.

She had taken a break in 2016, but returned for the World Cup in 2017, which England won.

The England and Wales Cricket Board supported her decision to keep away from the showcase event.

“Since the end of the summer Sarah hasn't been able to train fully with the squad due to not being as fit as she would want to be from a psychological point of view,” England coach Mark Robinson said in an ECB statement.

“At the moment, she isn't in a place where we would all be comfortable that the demanding training, playing and travel schedule wouldn't potentially put her backwards and make her road to full recovery longer.”

England will name its squad next week.
