England women’s wicket-keeper Sarah Taylor has been facing some personal issues due to which she has missed a lot of cricket in the recent past.
Mostly, Sarah struggles with anxiety issues which have derailed her international career a bit; she also pulled herself out of the T20I series against Australia recently.
On Tuesday, Sayah surprised one and all by posting a picture of herself wearing nothing but only wicket-keeping gloves for a health magazine.
Women’s Health is a magazine that spreads awareness about the mental and physical health of females.
Sarah, who is a victim of mental illness like anxiety and stress, had to beat some of the health issues to become a part of the campaign.
The 30-year-old bared it all while taking the bails off in a campaign for the magazine. Sarah mentioned in the caption on her Instagram that it was out of her comfort zone to bare it all for the photoshoot, but it felt powerful.
The caption read, “Anyone that knows me will know that this is a little out of my comfort zone, but I’m so proud of myself and grateful to @womenshealthuk for inviting me to be a part of this issue. I’ve always had issues with my body and I had to get over a few in order to do this and it was completely empowering. Every other girl looks stunning! Please remember EVERY woman is BEAUTIFUL. Thank you to everyone involved!”
The 30-year-old Sarah has taken a break from international cricket on more than one occasion due to her anxiety problems. She took a break during the Women’s Ashes, saying, “I don’t want people to feel this is exactly the same. There are plenty of challenges I’ve overcome on the way but mental health is not something you ‘beat’.”
