Veteran New Zealand batter Ross Taylor brought a fitting end to an illustrious career, with a wicket on just his third delivery of the second Test as New Zealand dismantled Bangladesh by an inning and 117 runs to level the two-match Test series. Taylor had announced that the ongoing home season will be his last for New Zealand.

Meanwhile, Taylor received a standing ovation when he walked out to bat and was very emotional during the national anthem at the start of the match. Watch the video here.

 

 

Taylor has been a great servant of New Zealand cricket across formats. He made his Test debut in 2007 and went on to play 112 Tests, scoring 7684 runs and notching up 19 hundreds and 35 half-centuries. Taylor couldn’t win a World Cup in his decade long career but the win in the Test Championship added feathers to an already illustrious career.

Taylor will go down as New Zealand’s one of the greatest cricketers of all time. Meanwhile, New Zealand were too hot to handle for Bangladesh in the second Test. Having scored a mammoth 521 – 6 in the first inning, they bowled out Bangladesh for 126 and 278 in the first and second inning, winning the game by inning and 117 runs.
