Jerome Taylor announces retirement from Test Cricket

West Indies speedster Jerome Taylor has announced his retirement from Test cricket.

Taylor has taken 130 wickets in 46 Tests over 13 years and will continue to play in ODIs and T20s.

Taylor gave his formal decision to the WICB stating that he wanted to retire from Test cricket.

Injuries have plagued his career. After making an impressive debut at the age of 18 in 2003, he spent nearly 5 years out of the Test squad due to injuries, from 2009 to 2014.

Taylor returned to playing Tests in 2014, playing another 17 Tests. After taking two wickets in three Tests against Australia on West Indies' 2015-16 tour, he has decided to focus on limited-overs cricket.

This decision came to light when the squad for the first Test match against India was being announced.
