If there is any greatest player of the New Zealand team at the moment, then it is Ross Taylor, who has played the most Test, ODI and T20 International matches for the country. Apart from this, he is also the batsman to score the most Test and Most One Day International runs for New Zealand. Ross Taylor said goodbye to international cricket on Thursday.

After two Tests against Bangladesh, six ODIs against Australia and Netherlands, I am taking retirement. Thank you for the incredible support of 17 years. It is an honor to represent my country.”
Ross Taylor, who led the team to victory in the final of the ICC World Test Championship in 2021 for the New Zealand team, is retiring before the T20 World Cup in 2022 and then the ODI World Cup in 2023.
