Charlotte Edwards: England Captain Retires From International Cricket.

England women's captain Charlotte Edwards has retired from international cricket after a decade in the role.

Made a CBE in 2014, the 36-year-old last year is the only player - man or woman - to captain England in 200 internationals.

"I leave very proud of the standing in which the women's game is held and of my contribution as a player and captain," she said.

"It's the right time for a new captain to lead the team forward."

Edwards led England to the 2009 World Cup and World T20 titles, also winning four Ashes series against Australia.
