Hampshire bowlers Ryan Stevenson and Brad Taylor have confirmed their retirements from professional cricket following the end of the 2021 season.

Seamer Stevenson, 29, and off-spinner Taylor, 24, have both been beset by injuries in recent seasons.

Taylor became the youngest player for 135 years to make his Hampshire debut when he faced Lancashire in a 40-over match in 2013, aged 16 and 154 days.

Right-armer Stevenson made his debut for the county in 2015.

A former England Under-19 captain, Taylor’s last first-class appearance came in June 2018, with his last white-ball appearances in August 2019.

Stevenson, who previously played minor counties cricket for Devon, took a career-best 4-70 in the Bob Willis Trophy against Middlesex in August 2020.
