The senior statesman of the BLACKCAPS dressing room.
Since debuting as a fresh faced 21 year old in 2006, Ross Taylor has carved out one of the most successful batting careers in New Zealand cricket history.
He sits at the top of the Test run scoring charts for New Zealand and is the first player to have appeared in 100 international fixtures in all three cricket formats.
He has adapted his game over the years from a hard hitting dasher into more of a stroke maker and continues to tick off the milestones.
Taylor brings immense experience to the team and also a safe pair of hands at first slip, where he has taken over 250 international catches.
