Taylor eyes history

LONDON: England international Sarah Taylor will make history this weekend when she becomes the first woman to play men's grade cricket in Australia. The 26-year-old wicketkeeper will represent Northern Districts against Port Adelaide in South Australia's premier men's competition. "I had no idea that I would be the first woman to play at this level in Australia, but I am sure that I won't be the last," said the veteran of eight Tests, 98 ODIs and 73 Twenty20s for England. Taylor has already signed to play for Adelaide Strikers in the inaugural edition of Women's Big Bash League, and is also currently playing 50-over women's state cricket.
