Troy Taylor (born 28 February 1984 in the Cayman Islands) is a cricketer.[1] A right-handed batsman and right-arm medium-fast bowler,[2] he has played for the Cayman Islands national cricket team since 2005, having previously represented them at Under-19 level.[3]

Career[edit]

Taylor's first taste of international cricket came as part of the 2003 Americas Under-19 Championship in King City, Ontario,[4] where he was the leading wicket-taker. He won the man of the match award after taking 7/12 against Bermuda, which was at the time a tournament record.[5] Taylor made his senior debut in the repêchage tournament for the 2005 ICC Trophy, against Fiji.

He made his first-class debut in the 2005 ICC Intercontinental Cup, playing against Bermuda and Canada at the Toronto Cricket, Skating and Curling Club.[6] He next played for the Cayman Islands in the ICC Americas Championship in King City in August 2006, and hasn't played for them since,[4] though he was in their squad for Division Three of the World Cricket League in Darwin, Australia in 2007.[7]
