Taibu Quits Cricket For God

Tatenda Taibu, the former Zimbabwe captain and wicket-keeper batsman, has announced his retirement from the sport to devote his life to the church.

The 29-year-old batsman and wicket-keeper made his international debut in 2001, and became team captain three years later – the youngest in the country’s history. Taibu played 28 Tests and 150 ODIs for Zimbabwe and has quit aged only 29, usually a cricketer’s prime.

“I just feel that my true calling now lies in doing the Lord’s work and although I am fortunate and proud to have played for my country, the time has come for me to put my entire focus on that part of my life,” said Taibu in a statement issued by Zimbabwe Cricket.
