The Sunday Guardian - - The Big Story -

HARARE :For­mer Zimbabwe skip­per Bren­dan Tay­lor is set to re­join his na­tional side af­ter end­ing his con­tract with English county side Not­ting­hamshire, Zimbabwe Cricket an­nounced. “Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) is pleased to an­nounce that fol­low­ing the end of his con­tract with and re­lease from English county Not­ting­hamshire, ZC has for­mally con­tracted Bren­dan Tay­lor to play do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional cricket in and for Zimbabwe,” read a state­ment from the cricket board on Thurs­day. Tay­lor signed with Notts in March 2015 on a Kol­pak deal, in a move that was thought to have ef­fec­tively ended his in­ter­na­tional ca­reer, but the 31-year-old bats­man cited “fam­ily rea­sons” for his de­sire to re­turn home, hav­ing helped the county club se­cure tro­phies this year in both the UK do­mes­tic one­day and Twenty20 com­pe­ti­tions.
