May have seen Ross Taylor’s last test match in Overseas – Simon Doull


India has come far ahead of New Zealand in the second test match. The host team has set up a near-impossible target of 540 runs to win on a track that is assisting more and more to the spinners with every passing hour. At the of the 3rd day, New Zealand were 140 – 5 and have to survive two days of cricket.

Ross Taylor, one of the finest batsmen of NZ has had a disappointing series this time having scored only 11, 2, 1, and 6 in the four innings of this test series. Taylor is probably in the twilight of his career, and his retirement speculations were circling in the cricketing fraternity after NewZealand won the World Test Championship against India in June of this year.

Now Simon Doull, the former cricketer, who has been commentating in the current series has shared his opinion on Ross Taylor. Speaking to the host broadcaster Star Sports, he said “I think this is his last test overseas, that is for sure. He was just trying to be aggressive today. He will be a little disappointed with the way some of these shots came out. I think he will play some test matches or at least a test or two at home through the summer. I don’t think he is quite ready to retire now but I think we may have seen the last of Ross Taylor In New Zealand over this summer as far as Test match cricket is concerned and it’s possibly the last test match we see of him overseas.

Speaking of the best of Ross Taylor’s career over the years, Doul further commented “Let’s not remember that (his current low scores). Let’s remember the big double hundred at Perth, let’s remember the hundreds in England he scored. So lets remember the good times of the great player that Ross Taylor was, let’s not remember for the eight balls he faced at the Wankhede stadium in his last possibly test match overseas because he has been a terrific player, one of the NZ’s best ever and the record shows that “

India bowled out New Zealand for 62 runs, led by brilliant bowling performances from Mohammad Siraj, Ravi Chandran Ashwin, and Axar Patel, and then declared their second innings for 276 for seven.
