Sarah Taylor could play for English men`s cricket team

London: 23-year-old Sarah Taylor could become the first woman to play for a men`s English county side after holding talks with Sussex about being the backup wicketkeeper for its second team.

Taylor said that Sussex contacted the women`s national-team coach Mark Lane about using her services for the next season.

The talented wicketkeeper-batsman told the Guardian newspaper on Monday that "there`s part of me doubting myself ... but I would love to do it."

Taylor will play for a men`s club team in Birmingham this year but could be on standby if Sussex needed a wicketkeeper at short notice.

Taylor will soon leave for the 50-over World Cup in India her coach said and added that it was brilliant on her part to back her for men’s cricket as well.
