Brendan Taylor signed off from his international career with Zimbabwe with a majestic century against India at the World Cup in Auckland, but was disappointed that it came in a losing cause.
An unbeaten century from Suresh Raina and a fifty from captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni guided India to comfortable six-wicket win over Zimbabwe in their final World Cup Pool match in Auckland on Saturday.
This match sees two teams come into this game with different objectives. India are already assured of first place in the group, while Zimbabwe are going home and want to do well for their departing stand-in skipper Brendan Taylor.
Brendan Taylor will in all likelyhood probably be playing his final international match for Zimbabwe when they take on India in the World Cup in Auckland on Saturday, and he wants to go out on a high.
Zimbabwe cricket has suffered a big blow with the news that senior batsman and Test captain Brendan Taylor has signed a Kolpak deal with Nottinghamshire, which will rule him out of international cricket for three years.
