Brendan Taylor's Wife Mugged Outside Home in Harare

Zimbabwe batsman Brendan Taylor's wife was mugged outside their home this week, the cricketer has revealed.

Taylor took to Twitter on Wednesday to report about the incident: "Just had an alarming situation outside my house. I was waiting for my wife's return in my driveway. I started hearing her screaming about 100m from my gate, she was getting mugged by four armed men. I ran outside and they sped away in red Honda Fit.

"Fortunately she only lost her handbag and it could (have) been a lot worse," Taylor said in another tweet. He also urged residents to remain on guard against criminal activities in Zimbabwe. "People are getting desperate, be vigilant when entering your property and try keep off the roads after dark. With all this load shedding we're easy targets."
