Ross Taylor: Great to finish off career with win and wicket
A wicket with the final delivery of his Test career along with a series-levelling win over Bangladesh, veteran New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor couldn’t have asked for a more befitting farewell after a 15-year-long journey in red-ball cricket and the star agreed it was “great.”
A talisman of New Zealand cricket, Taylor ended his Test career by dismissing Ebadot Hossain to help the hosts beat Bangladesh by an innings and 117 runs to level the series 1-1 here on Tuesday.
“It’s great to finish off your career with a win and a wicket. I wanted to finish off with a win and the guys did it. Bangladesh put us under a lot of pressure a number of times, it’s only fair that we share the series,” an emotional Taylor told the official broadcasters after the match.
After the fall of Bangladesh’s ninth wicket, the crowd present at the Hagley Oval chanted for Taylor to be given the ball and New Zealand skipper Tom Latham obliged.
