Ross Taylor, the middle-order batsman of New Zealand, has continued to glorify his career which is already laden with records. His short innings of 22 runs in the final Test of the three-game red-ball series against Australia, Taylor dethroned former Kiwi skipper Stephen Fleming to emerge as the highest run-getter for New Zealand in Test cricket.
He reached this landmark in the 99th Test match by mustering 3 runs against the off-spinner Nathan Lyon after hitting him over mid-on. The 35-year old cricketer who struggled to go well against Kangaroos could have reached this milestone earlier. Nevertheless, it still lifted his heart as he richly deserved all the respect he has earned.
Last year, the International veteran also installed himself on the top of the list containing the leading run-getters for New Zealand in ODI cricket. Moreover, this was perhaps the only positive note for New Zealand in a series which was completely bossed by Australia. Doing so, Taylor was delighted to serve his country and vowed to come hard in his future assignments.
