  1. Ross Taylor bids emotional goodbye to cricket "It has been a pleasure, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it," Taylor said while acknowledging his teammates after the match.

  4. 'I made the decisions but someone else took its credit': Rahane fires cryptic shot about India's Test win in Australia In a startling revelation, Ajinkya Rahane, the former India Test vice-captain took a cryptic dig at some people, saying they took away the credit for his hard work referring to India's 2-1 win in the 2020/21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy. With Virat Kohli back home to be there for the birth of his first child, Rahane led the team spiritedly in Australia as India - who were rolled over for 36 in the first Test in Adelaide - won Test matches in Melbourne and Brisbane, and drew at Sydney. "I know what I did there. I don't need to say this to anybody. And that's not my nature that I will go and take credit. Yes, there were a few things, for which I made the decisions on the field and dressing room but somebody else too the credit. What was important for me was that we won the series and that was a historical series. For me, that was really special," link

  9. Ross Taylor to retire from international cricket Veteran batsman Ross Taylor will retire from international cricket at the end of the New Zealand's home season, bringing the curtains down on a journey that began in an ODI in Napier against West Indies in March 2006. Ending speculation over his playing future, the 37-year-old confirmed on Thursday (December 30) that the forthcoming two-Test series against Bangladesh will be his last in the New Zealand whites. He will not play the subsequent Tests against South Africa and bow out with six ODIs against Australia and Netherlands later in the summer. Taylor's final Test will be at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch and will take his tally of appearances to 112, tying him with Daniel Vettori for the most Tests played by a New Zealand cricketer. link
