Tatenda Taibu quits cricket for Church aged 29

Former Zimbabwe national cricket captain Tatenda Taibu has decided to retire from the sport to devote his life to the church, Zimbabwe Cricket announced Monday.

“I just feel that my true calling now lies in doing the Lord’s work and although I am fortunate and proud to have played for my country, the time has come for me to put my entire focus on that part of my life,” said Taibu in a statement issued by Zimbabwe Cricket.

The 29-year-old made his international debut in 2001, and became team captain three years later – the youngest in the country’s history.  He has played 28 Tests and 150 ODIs for Zimbabwe.
