‘Emotional fatigue’ causes Nat Sciver to withdraw from England v India series: The 30-year-old all-rounder was set to lead England in three T20Is and three ODIs in the absence of the injured Heather Knight. Instead, wicketkeeper Amy Jones will lead the team in the T20 starting in Durham on Saturday.
“I have played a lot of cricket in the last nine months and I am emotionally exhausted,” Sewer said.
“The elite game is very demanding and at the moment I am not able to perform without compromising my health, so I have to take some time off from cricket to focus on myself.
“It’s the right decision for me and it’s the right decision for the team.”
England Women’s Director of Cricket Jonathan Finch said: “We fully support Nate and her decision to walk away from this series. Cricket is important but completely irrelevant in the context of an individual’s health and happiness. Is.
“The welfare of our players and staff is always our top priority and we will be supporting the Nets throughout this period.”
One of the world’s premier all-rounders, Sciver made his England debut in 2013. He scored a century in a losing effort in the World Cup final against Australia in April and then scored his maiden Test century in a draw against South Africa in June.
He led England at the Commonwealth Games, where they missed out on medals after losing in the semi-finals against hosts India and in the bronze-medal play-off against New Zealand.
His Trent Rockets reached the eliminator of The Hundred, with Sciver at the crease when 24 runs were needed from the last over. Although she hit three consecutive sixes, she could not get the required four off the last ball and the Rockets lost by two runs to the Southern Braves.
Without Sciver, Knight, and rested fast bowler Catherine Brunt – Sciver’s wife – England will field an inexperienced squad in the series against Commonwealth Games runners-up India.
