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.

How is this even cricket news? I know your ideology man, just don't make everything here a politics thread

More surprising thing is how someone as good as Kohli, who did so much for Indian cricket, is disowned and being shat on by the Indian cricket fandom all of a sudden. :lol:

 

Talk about kicking someone when they are down....

Most people love sh*tting on Kohli just because he is aggressive on field and doesn't take bullshit from SENA countries. These guys don't care whether he will retire as GOAT Odi player or he is the best Test captain India ever had.

They don't even care that same Pacers barring Bumrah played under MSD and we were continuously thrashed in SENA tests. Now we dominate SENA tests with same pace resources. Even since his last century in 2019 he averages 53 in Odi and 39 in T20. In tests he is averaging 26 which is disappointing but if he keeps winning us overseas series it's not an issue cos sooner or later his form will return.

Personally I still rate Sachin way above Kohli as a batsman but since Sachin's retirement Kohli and Rohit have been the 2 best players we had.

It's a shame QDK retiring at such a young age but this will happen more often as Covid has messed up life and playing all formats for all players is becoming almost impossible.

IF Kohli's stays away from all the wokeness i rate him above all. Honestly i disliked him 5 years back because of over aggression non-stop gaali-galloch and stuff, but when you look at australia , england like teams they deserve it . AFter this recent test wins im his fan, even tough he did not bring ICC trophies the test wins are something else . Never watched so much of test before , deserves respect. (Criticism too )

Kohli's problem is that is he doesn't respect the cricket fans, his teammates, seniors or even the game. He thinks he's above it all and that's doesn't go well with me personally. Being agressive is one thing and being stupid is another. He gets into needless fights on and off the field with everyone. I still remember him getting into a needless arguments with the west indies players when they visited here last time.

 

When we started touring Pak post kargil ABV said "match bhi jeeto aur dil bhi" that was a period when even Pakistanis in stadium would cheer for us and ours was a team with as much goodwill as the Kiwis. Right now we must be the most hated cricket team's along with Australia beacuse of the super agressive on field behaviour & partly due to the sucess of IPL. The last time everyone cheered for us unanimously was when we defeated Australia early this year.
