Black Caps skipper Kane Williamson was thrilled with the efforts of middle-order men Ross Taylor and Tom Latham after the first ODI against England.
Ross Taylor is poised to join an exclusive club of New Zealand cricketers tomorrow when he plays his 200th One Day International for the Black Caps.
New Zealand batting coach Craig McMillan felt that the Black Caps got the better of Pakistan in the 21 overs they were able to play on day one of the second Test.
Ross Taylor says he is confident that he will be able to perform despite a deterioration in the condition of his eye ahead of the second Test against Pakistan.
Black Caps batsman Ross Taylor has been cleared to play the second Test against Pakistan beginning Friday, after seeing a second eye specialist in Hamilton.
New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor has been dealing with a growth in his left eye for a year, but it has reached a point where it needs further attention.
