Its always quite disheartening to see a young talent bid adieu to the game due to health issues. James Taylor, a promising middle order batsman, was forced to walk into the sunset as he suffered a serious heart problem.

Taylor made his International debut in 2011 against Ireland and he had  fantastic county stints with Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. In 27 ODIs for England, he scored 887 runs and also was a part of the English side in the 2015 ICC World Cup.
