Mental health is not something you ‘beat’ – Sarah Taylor

England’s wicket-keeper batter Sarah Taylor is back on the field and is playing for Surrey Stars in the on-going Kia Super League in England. The 30-year old England cricketer has been facing severe anxiety problems and has remained on and off the field in the recent past.

She also withdrew herself from the Ashes T20 series versus Australia last month. But after taking the break, she said, “I first took a break from the game in 2016. But I don’t want people to feel this is the same. I’ve made progress in that time and there are plenty of challenges I’ve met on the way and hurdles I’ve overcome. That said, mental health is not something you ‘beat’. It’s a continual management process and at the moment I don’t feel in a good enough place to compete in international sport.”

The aggressive player is looking in good form in the annual tournament of England.

Here’s her Instagram post:
