Watch former Shrewsbury School pupil and England cricketer James Taylor return to the nets - VIDEO

By Luke Hatfield | Cricket | Published:

Footage has emerged of former Shrewsbury School pupil and England cricketer James Taylor testing his batting after being forced to retire last year.

James Taylor was forced to retire in April 2016.

The clip shows Taylor playing in the nets - showing that despite his career ending heart condition he's still more than capable at the wicket.

The 27-year-old who turned out in the Birmingham League for Shrewsbury, and played for Nottinghamshire was forced to retire in April 2016 after scans revealed ARVC (Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Arrhythmia).

The middle-order batsman played 27 ODIs and had previously captained England in a trip to Ireland.
