Australia’s Sarah Elliott Announces Retirement From Cricket
Australian right-handed batswoman Sarah Elliott announced retirement from all forms of cricket on Wednesday.
The 35-year-old cricketer Sarah was also a part of Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) Franchise Melbourne Renegades in the first edition before joining Adelaide Strikers.
Sarah was hailed by Cricket Australia Chief Executive Officer (CEO) James Sutherland for her progress in cricket in recent past.
“We congratulate Sarah Elliott on a wonderful international and domestic career and the outstanding contribution she has made to cricket both on and off the field,” Sutherland said.
The Victoria-born Sarah also played for the VicSpirit in National Women Cricket League.
“Sarah proved she could match it with the best players in the world and she should be proud of the way she carried herself throughout her career and the legacy she leaves behind,” Sutherland added.
The batting all-rounder Sarah, who made her debut in 2005 in Taunton against England, represented Australia in 22 One-Day Internationals, 14 Twenty20 and three Tests.
In 2005-06, Sarah led Australia’s domestic side Victoria before leading Renegades in the inaugural edition of WBBL.
“We would like to thank Sarah for her service to cricket as both a player and leader, and for her commitment to cricket whilst also raising two beautiful boys,” Sutherland concluded.
In 2010, Sarah was also a part of Australia’s Women’s squad that won the Twenty20 World Cup in the West Indies followed by the Ashes win in England in 2011, where she scored her maiden Test century (104 off 276).
Sarah last played for Australia in 2014 against England at Perth.
