New Zealand’s Ross Taylor bids adieu to international cricket

HAMILTON: New Zealand’s experienced right-handed batter Ross Taylor has bid adieu to international cricket after the conclusion of the home ODI series against the Netherlands, here on Monday.

Taylor, who played his last international match against the Netherlands here today, has decided to call off on his stunning career. The right-handed batter scored 14 off 16 balls in his last international game with his side securing a crushing 115-runs victory.

Taylor holds the record for scoring the most international runs for New Zealand as he scored 18199 runs across all formats in 450 matches at a combined batting average of 42.7 including 40 centuries and 93 fifties.

Players from the Netherlands also presented the guard of honour to Taylor when he came out to bat in the third ODI.

It is pertinent to mention here that the home side New Zealand has whitewashed the Netherlands in the three-match ODI series that concluded today.
