New Zealand’s one of the most successful cricketers of all time, Ross Taylor had announced earlier this week that he will be retiring from international cricket at the end of the Kiwis’ home season.
Meanwhile, one of his old videos of the India vs New Zealand Test match went viral on social media like wildfire. The incident took place back in 2016 when the Kiwis toured India and Taylor appeared baffled by some umpiring decisions in the second Test. Following this, the 37-year-old was seen using a few cuss words to express his disappointment at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
The veteran NZ batter was seen shouting “F***”. Moreover, Taylor also appeared to use a Hindi cuss word “B******d” before turning back towards his position in the slips. The camera then panned on the man in question, India skipper Virat Kohli, who was seen with a cheeky smile on his face.
Here’s the full video of the incident:
Ross Taylor draws curtains on a stellar career
The Wellington cricketer is set to play his final Test match at Christchurch next week against Bangladesh. With over 18,000 international runs, Taylor is the current leading run-scorer for the Blackcaps in Tests and ODIs. He also led his national side back in 2010 before Kane Williamson took over.
“It’s been an amazing journey and I feel incredibly fortunate to have represented my country for as long as I have.
“It’s been such a privilege to play with and against some of the greats of the game and to have created so many memories and friendships along the way. But all good things must come to an end and the timing feels right,” Ross Taylor said in a statement.
