Ross Taylor Becomes the Highest Run-Getter in New Zealand Tests

Ross Taylor gets emotional as he breaks the New Zealand record for the highest run-getter in Test matches. 

Ross Taylor claims that he never imagined he could possibly break the record, ‘Not at all. I always thought I was a good one-day player, I was happy to play one Test, to be fair’.

Later on, it was revealed that his mentor, the late Martin Crowe set this goal for Taylor during his first Test match, years ago. This led the 35-year old Kiwi cricket player to burst down in tears, as he remembers the words of their former captain who would call him ‘my son’. 

The Kiwi cricketer said, ‘My goal was to play one Test match. I guess it's an emotional time because my mentor Martin Crowe.. one of the goals he put down for me was to be New Zealand's highest test run-scorer. To be honest, I didn't believe him, but I'd have loved for him to be here and help celebrate’.

Then, he added, ‘When I first played for New Zealand I'd had a pretty decent one-day career and only scored three or four first-class hundreds and Twenty20 was just coming through. I always thought I was good enough to play one-day cricket, but Test cricket was something I was never quite sure if I was good enough. That's why I'd seek Martin's help to become a better player than the raw, gay abandon player that I was as a youngster’.

Aside from playing for the New Zealand cricket team, Taylor also played for two teams of the Indian Premier League which are the Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Delhi Daredevils.
