West Indies spinner Anisa Mohammed takes break from international cricket

The offspinner has requested CWI for a six month break from the national team

West Indies offspinner Anisa Mohammed has taken a six-month break from international cricket, Cricket West Indies (CWI) said on Friday. Mohammed, Women's T20Is highest wicket taker with 125 scalps, has played 14 ODIs for West Indies in the last 12 months and also appeared for Trinbago Women in the Caribbean Premier League.

"Mohammed requested to take a break from the game with immediate effect, after a hectic year of cricket both home and away," CWI said in a statement.

The West Indies vice-captain last played in their ODI World Cup semifinal against Australia in Hamilton where she suffered a hamstring injury while fielding. She also featured in the recent women's 6xity competition for Knight Riders.

The 34-year old said that the break is to take care of herself and not a permanent goodbye from the game.

"Cricket has given me all that I have, and I still love it as much as the first day I started playing, therefore this decision was not an easy one for me, especially with the T20 World Cup five months away. However, I must listen to my body and my mind that I need to take time away from the game at this time. This is not a permanent goodbye but rather a see you soon," she said in the statement.

Mohammed last played T20I cricket in September last year against South Africa.
