New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor breaks silence in retirement news

Senior New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor, in an interview with the ICC, said the 2019 final was not as smooth as it could be and that he would retire after the tournament (or later that summer). However, when asked again on Wednesday whether the 37-year-old Taylor will retire after winning the WTC title, he declined, saying that there is still the excitement of playing for New Zealand and doing well. Taylor, who has been on the cricket field for nearly 15 years, is the Kiwi team’s highest run scorer. He currently has 18054 international runs to his name.

According to ESPN Cricinfo, Taylor told a press conference on Wednesday, ‘We are still wondering if we can call ourselves a world champion. But I still love this cricket game so much. I want to learn more and get better, so that’s a good sign. But yeah, at this point I want to play cricket, at any level, and play as long as I can.

“New Zealanders retire at 34 or 35 for whatever reason, and once I get to 37, I understand why they do it. You are asked a lot of questions about your age. But you still do what you did two years ago. I think I can play domestic cricket and I still love to play for my country and I still love to play for the central district.

However, the future of Taylor’s T20 remains unclear as he was dropped from the New Zealand T20 squad last summer and asked to prove his form and fitness at Super Smash for a central contract. Taylor has not played a single T20 international since November 2020.

Kiwi batsman said, ‘Like I said, I haven’t really thought about anything. For some time my focus has only been on doing everything to secure a place in the T20 World Cup squad. I think the teams are very organized in T20, and a lot of cricket has to be played before and after it. I don’t see the team changing much in the future.
