Cricket fraternity applauds Ross Taylor for his gutsy 181 against England

Posted On / /

Ross Taylor’s career-best 181 not out helped New Zealand beat England by five wickets at Dunedin on Wednesday. The former Kiwi skipper’s swashbuckling innings came off just 147 deliveries and was laced with 17 fours and 6 massive sixes. This was also the second hundred of the series for Ross Taylor.

Courtesy of his fantastic effort New Zealand have levelled the ODI series 2-2 and the final game will take place in Christchurch on Friday.

Taylor’s gutsy knock came at a time when his team needed it the most. Chasing a daunting target of 336 New Zealand were reeling at 2/2. Along with Tom Latham, he forged a crucial 187-run stand to bring the Kiwi’s back into the game. In the latter part of the innings, the home side did lose a few wickets but Taylor held the fort at one end. New Zealand ultimately romped with three balls to spare.

Here is how cricket fraternity reacted to Ross Taylor’s heroic knock:
