Bangalore: Englands Clare Taylor made it to a hundred international appearances for England in both One-day Internationals and Tests (87 ODIs and 13 Tests) on 30 January when England took on hosts New Zealand (White Ferns) in the league stage of the World Series.Quite an affable cricketer Taylor is fondly know as Rompa and is one of the easiest to get along with in the circuit. This feat is a great testimony of her level of endurance and fitness. To boot, Taylor has also represented England soccer team on quite a number of occasions.Born on 22 May 1965 at Huddersfield, Yorkshire, Taylor made her ODI debut versus Ireland in December 1988 and her Test debut against India in November 1995.Clare also has the distinction of notching up another century earlier in 2002. Clare was presented with a trophy marking her 100th wicket in international cricket, at the Jersey match against India. She is the first English player to reach this milestone achieved before only by Catherine Fitzpatrick, Lynn Fullston (both Australia) and Diana Edulji (India). Taylor was awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list for her international cricket, international soccer and work with schools etc as a Sports' Ambassador! She was Bowler of the Series against India in 1999.A driver for the Royal Mail, she is no slouch with the bat and a stand with Suzie Redfern at the close of the last day undoubtedly saved England in the Guildford Test against New Zealand in 1996.
