Ross Taylor

Since debuting as a 21-year-old in 2006, Ross Taylor has carved out one of the most successful batting careers in New Zealand cricket history. He sits at the top of the Test run-scoring charts for New Zealand and is the first player to have appeared in 100 international fixtures in all three cricket formats. Ross has adapted his game over the years from a hard-hitting dasher into more of a stroke maker and he has taken over 250 international catches.

Ross led the Black Caps to victory last week, clubbing a four through the leg side to win the World Test Championship final against India in the final session on Wednesday. It is the first time New Zealand have won a major ICC title since the 2000 ICC Knockout Trophy,
