Taylor to set incredible milestone in cricket history
Just one more match. Ross Taylor will set an incredible record when he plays the first Test against India. As the first player in history, the experienced New Zealand middle-order batsman will rise up to a 100-match milestone in all three formats of international cricket.
Taylor made his international debut on March 1 in 2006 with a match against the West Indies. He came to the age of 35 now and played 99 Tests, 231 ODIs and 100 T20I matches.
Taylor will make the new record himself this month. He will set the record as soon as he steps into the first of the two-match Test series against India at Wellington on February 21.
However, Taylor, who made his debut in the white dress against South Africa in the T20I. He did not think he would get any more Test matches after the first series. Because he scored only 44 runs in that two-match Test series against the Proteas.
The right-hander, however, had been quite excited before rising to a new height this time.
“I’m very happy with what I’ve accomplished in my career,” said Taylor. “I think I’m going to do something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve always wanted to play for New Zealand.”
Taylor has been batting at number four for the Black Caps for a long time. He has scored more than 17,000 runs in three cricket formats for the national team.
