The 26-year-old middle-order batsman announced his retirement from cricket last week after being diagnosed with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), a condition that stops the right side of the heart pumping blood properly and may lead to sudden death.

Taylor spent two weeks in hospital but tweeted a photograph of himself outside the hospital building, saying: “Well, that has been one hell of an experience! What a beautiful day.”

Meanwhile, a statement on Nottinghamshire’s website said that Taylor is now continuing his recovery at home.
