Ross Taylor, who was already has the most ODI centuries and Fifties for New Zealand Cricket Team, added another milestone to his glittering resume
NZ Cricket Team’s Batsman Ross Taylor surpassed Stephen Fleming to become the Most and Highest runs maker for New Zealand in the 3rd ODI against Bangladesh at Dunedin on Wednesday (February 20), the right hander went past Fleming’s tally of 8,007 runs during course of his innings of 64 runs. He also passed 8,000 runs during the innings, becoming the 4th fastest batsman to the mark, only behind Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Sourav Ganguly. That was pretty humbling to receive that kind of reception from the Peoples when I passed the milestone, he said at the half-innings interval.
Long held as one of New Zealand’s greatest-ever batsman, the milestone is just another accolade to add to the list for Ross Taylor, who has more ODI tons and half centuries than any of his countrymen. He also boasts of highest average of any New Zealand batsman with more than 500 One Day International runs.
However, Ross Taylor’s yet to reach one milestone. With Fleming having turned out for ICC World XI Team as well as for New Zealand Cricket Team, Taylor’s overall ODI runs tally stands at 8,037, an agonising 11 runs clear of where Ross Taylor ended his innings.
With the 3rd ODI against Bangladesh to be NZ’s last international engagement before the ICC World Cup in May and June, it seems Taylor can surpass the former New Zealand skipper on the grandest stage of all, Ross Taylor is The Best Batsman Of New Zealand Cricket Team.
