New Zealand senior batsman Ross Taylor’s eyes lit up at the farewell match.
Ross Taylor’s farewell match was eye-popping, with rival Netherlands presenting a guard of honor while spectators rose from their seats to pay tribute to their star cricketer. Ross Taylor, 38, announced in December that he would retire from international cricket after the one-day series against the Netherlands.
Yesterday, he played the farewell international match of his career against the Dutch team. Before the match, Taylor had a child on one side and a teammate on the other side during the national anthem. Tears were flowing in his eyes on this occasion.
At the ground, the Dutch players presented Taylor with a guard of honor, although he was dismissed for just 14 runs in the match, but the fans rose from their seats to pay tribute to him.
Ross Taylor made his debut in 2006 and was the team’s all-time leading scorer for 16 years. He is also the Kiwi cricketer who has scored the most 7683 Test runs. The record is also in Taylor’s name.
