Ross Taylor: 100th test match for him
New Zealand Right-hand batsman Ross Taylor is playing his 100th test match. He becomes the only player to play 100 plus matches in all three formats.
“Really excited about the occasion. It’s not a great sign when you wake up in the morning and there’s some rain around. Ian Smith said a few words at an event last night, and it was very nice for the team and the family to experience something they might never do again. I’ll need some help drinking (the hundred bottles of wine), but they can be stored for a while. It keeps the tradition from Fleming, Brendon (McCullum) and Daniel Vettori who all played over a hundred Tests each and hopefully we can celebrate this one with a win,” Ross Taylor before the start of the match on his 100th test match.
