England cricketer reveals heart-rending condition

Tue, Apr 12, 2016, 05:59 PM
`My life has been turned upside down. That is why I am retiring from international cricket,' tweeted England cricketer James Taylor, who is hardly 26 years old.

James clarified that he is suffering from an incurable heart condition called Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (AVRC). Similar diagnosis was made for footballer Fabrice Muamba, who played for Bolton Wanderers in the 2012 season.

Last week, Taylor withdrew from the Nottinghamshire squad that was to meet Cambridge MCCU on the ground that he had a viral attack. But the diagnosis proved a heart-rending condition.

England Team Director Andrew Strauss has meanwhile assured Taylor that the England side was with him. It would help him through the surgery and also his recovery period.

`Safe to say this has been the toughest week of my life! My world is upside down. But I'm here to stay and am battling on! #lifetooshort# Taylor posted the tweet Tuesday morning.
