Ross Taylor has to be one of the unsung heroes of this decade in international cricket. The bloke has over 6000 runs in both Tests and ODIs, at an average of 48 and 45 respectively. Impressive numbers, right? Yet when we talk of the finest batsmen in world cricket, seldom would you see Taylor's name coming up in a debate. It's an irony for his persona though, considering the way he stormed into international cricket with a freewheeling style of strokeplay that thrilled the crowd to bits.
World Cup - Through the Years

Having featured in World Cup 2007, 2011 and 2015 - Ross Taylor is the most experienced player in New Zealand's squad of World Cup 2019. In 2007, in his first ever World Cup appearance, Taylor was dismissed for a duck against England and he had pretty low scores throughout the tournament that season. His first ever World Cup century came against Pakistan in 2011 and that remains to be his only World Cup century till date. Ross had an impressive World Cup 2011 where he performed consistently but again in 2015 he failed in the initial few games.

Towards the later stages of World Cup 2015 is when Taylor got back amongst the runs. With scores of 56, 42, 30 and 40 against Bangladesh, West Indies, South Africa and Australia respectively, Taylor chipped in with handy contributions but it was his inability to convert these starts into big scores that was a concern. With him being the most experienced batsman in the squad for WC 2019, it's high time Taylor starts performing consistently and helps New Zealand get into the knock-outs. The 2019 World Cup may well be his swansong, hence the middle order batsman would be looking forward to make it a memorable one.
