Ross Taylor’s last international innings stopped today with just 16 balls. The journey that started 17 years ago stopped only after scoring 14 runs. In the middle time, he made a lot of fame with the bat at 22 yards. As Taylor landed in Hamilton on Monday (March 4) against the Netherlands, the Netherlands players invited him to the field for the last time, with a guard of honor. And his teammates New Zealanders gave big gifts in the match. With a 115-run victory, they bid farewell to one of the best batsmen in their cricket history.

Luther Ross Putoya Lotte Taylor; The blood of the New Zealand cricketers is on the body of the New Zealand cricketer. Soon after his debut in the national team, he became one of the batting batsmen of the team. Surprisingly, his career never came to fruition. Taylor, who runs in secret, is perhaps the least celebrated cricketer of his generation. However, the statistics say that this right-handed batsman should be in the short list of the best of his time. In his 16-year career, he had an impossible series with the bat. There is no way to see how good a fielder he is.

As the first and only cricketer in history to play 100 matches in all three formats, Taylor holds several records for New Zealand. 

Taylor made his ODI debut in 2006 against the West Indies. He made his debut in T20 cricket the same year. A year later, he made his Test debut against South Africa. Then in his 16-year career, Ross Taylor became the highest run scorer in Test and ODI cricket for New Zealand.

Taylor made 84 runs in 112 Tests, 19 centuries and 35 half-centuries, a maximum of 290! Only Williamson is ahead of New Zealanders in terms of Test centuries. Williamson has scored 24 centuries in Tests.

In ODI cricket as well as in Tests, no one has scored more runs for New Zealand than Taylor. Taylor has scored 602 runs in 237 matches with 51 half-centuries and 21 centuries.

Taylor’s century in ODIs is the highest for New Zealand.

Taylor has scored 1909 runs in 102 Twenty20 matches in his career. He has also scored 6 half centuries.

Ross Taylor played some great innings in his career but did not get enough recognition. The innings against Pakistan in the 2011 World Cup was one of the best in the history of the World Cup. Taylor scored 131 runs in 124 matches, beating Shoaib Akhtar and Abdul Razzaq.

also scored a century off just 49 balls against the Wellington Firebirds in the Ford Trophy, New Zealand’s one-day domestic tournament this February. This innings is enough to understand that even at the age of 36, the edge of his bat has not diminished.

Despite playing two World Cup finals in a row, Ross Taylor has to say goodbye to touch the adorable trophy. However, the New Zealand legend is not going empty handed. The middle-order batsman had the good fortune to touch the trophy of the first ever Test Championship.

Saying goodbye, Taylor said: “It’s hard to make this decision, but everything is easy.

‘It was the hardest thing to do. Once the decision has been made, the matter does not seem so bad. Of course, I will miss a lot, I will miss my teammates. ‘

His wife Victoria, three daughters Mackenzie, Jonty, Adelaide and other friends were on the field today to watch Taylor’s farewell game. Taylor is happy to say goodbye in front of everyone.

At the time of his departure, he was satisfied with his career. In his long career of 18 years, sharing dressing rooms with many world class cricketers for New Zealand is a great achievement in his eyes. He was so proud to be able to play for the country that he would have been proud if he had to end his career playing for the national team one day without such a long career.

At the end of the 450th match of his career, Taylor said, “I have played against a number of world-class players, including some world-class teams. I am sure that when I retire, I will have some fond memories. You know, there were a lot of ups and downs, but I’m proud of it. I am going to play the 450th match today, I would have been happy if I had one. ‘
