Jerome Taylor has quit Test cricket. The 32-year-old West Indian pacer will be available for T20 and One-Day Internationals.
Taylor's retirement was announced by the West Indies Cricket Board on the day selectors named the Test squad against India. Taylor played 46 Test matches over 13 years and bagged 130 wickets.
The right-arm Jamaican pacer is quite well known in India. He has been associated with three IPL teams - Kings XI Punjab, Mumbai Indians and Pune Warriors.
Taylor made his Test debut against Sri Lanka in June 2003. His last Test was against Australia in Sydney in January this year. His best bowling figures in an innings - six for 47 - came against Australia in 2015. His best in a match - nine for 95 - came against India in 2006. Both feats came at Sabina Park.
Interestingly, Taylor was a decent bat lower down the order. As a No. 10 batsman, Taylor has scored a Test hundred and a fifty. His highest - 106 - came against New Zealand in 2008.
Taylor's career was hampered by injuries. Between 2009 and 2014, he could not play Test matches.
