    Said so a few weeks back that Ross was a classy batsman. With Guptill, Ross and others New Zealand are not to be taken lightly anymore.

    One of New Zealand's finest ever batsman.

    Still remember his 2011 world cup innings against Pak, he kept scoring 6 after 6. Almost played a gun innings in the 2015 cricket world cup final.

    A brilliant knock by Taylor against England. He did what Kane failed to do in the 3rd ODI.

    Easily the best Kiwi batsmen of all time.

    He has done enough in the last few years to become the #4 ODI batsman of this era after Kohli, Dhoni and de Villiers, although the South African can never play a gutsy innings like this. He would play a flash innings and then throw it away without finishing the job, something that he has done very often in his career.

    He might be just about ahead of Rohit and Dhawan at this point, but it is close. Then you have the likes of Warner, QdK and Root in the mix as well.

    These are just your opinions.

    My point was why bring Amla into it when Taylor is better than Sharma, Dhawan and very other Indian bastmen playing right now apart from Kohli?

    Because he is talked about the best ODI batsman of this era after Kohli, de Villiers and Dhoni. The fact is that he is not as good as Taylor and the other names that I mentioned in my previous post. An extremely overrated ODI player, and a living proof of how misleading statistics can be.

    People bash Amla because he has great stats but fon't tell full story. Amla has no second gear, can't handle pressure and can't adjust his batting according to run rate. Amla has better stats than all of his contemporaries bar AB and Dhoni, so he will always be bashed until his average drops below 50.

    Fantastic knock by Taylor!

    Got so close to bring the record for the highest score in the 2nd innings of an ODI (held by Shane Watson's 185* vs Bangladesh). Wish he hit the winning six to win the match and break the record instead of Latham.

    This has been anything but a quality innings. He's played over 120 deliveries at a SR of below 70, with the 48th over beginning.

    Should have upped the pace of his innings earlier today - I know he was rebuilding but when you’re at the crease for 45+ overs you need a better strike rate than 71.

    Nevertheless, he’s been playing really well these last few years.

    Ross against PAK is becoming what Sir Don was against ENG for 2 decades. Countless times, he was the only difference for a better English generation to lose to AUS. Only time they could manage him to struggle (if in a low scoring series, average of 56 is struggle!!), they won 4-1. Before that in his debut series 4-1 as well (& both times in AUS !!!), but that time he was simply Donald Bradman.

    If you, as a student, call out someone for cheating in an exam, you're generally barred from completing the exam.

    It's called staying in your lane. Taylor is a batsman, not an umpire.

    A few years ago I was lucky enough to watch him batting in the indoor nets at close quarters - what a clean hitter of the ball he is.

    Even as a die hard fan of Pakistan cricket, if I met Ross Taylor I would shake his hand and thank him for pointing out such a dodgy action from a repeat offender who is infamous for conveniently altering his action when he's struggling with the legal one. It's blatant premeditated cheating.

    Before we begin the character assassinations of other opposition perhaps we need to fix our house first. Your reaction is exactly what a lot of fans thought of Shane Watson but guess what I knew he was right from day one about Ajmal.

    Watson wasn't right because at that time Ajmal wasn't called. What Taylor did was poor sportsmanship. In any sport it;s not the job of the players to officate or advise the officials on what they should do.

    Taylor as a batsmen is pure class. Yesterday he demoralised the SL bowlers to score a brilliant century. Having an average start to his ODI career, in the latter half Taylor has been as good as anyone in recent years.

    I understand that as a batsman you shouldn't get involved in these situations as a matter of principal however both Taylor and Watson were 100% convinced that Hafeez and Ajmal respectively were chucking - both of these spinners have been guilty of this. At the end of the day a batsman's career and the team's fortunes in the contest are on the line so why should they put up with it when they know what they're seeing isn't legal.

    We can agree to disagree whether Watson was right or not but the fact is Ajmal was banned and ineffective after remodelling his action on his return, so ultimately he was proven to be correct.

    Ross Taylor is a class act and for me just sits a tier below the likes Kohli, Smith, Williamson and Root as an all format batsman. Ever since the 2011 WC game he's one of the few batsmen who's consistently managed to get the wood on Pakistan.

    If Im correct when Taylor called him out Hafeez, he was bowling with his new action , which is perferctly fine and why the umpires dismissed him immediatly to carry on bowling. Ajmal may have been dodgy but there are others too. Do you think Waston would ever call out an Indian spinner such as Ashwin who has looked dodgy since day 1? It always seem to be Pakistan whether it's spin, reverse swing etc.

    For me in ODI Taylor is above Root and Williamson. It's a tight call between him, Crowe and Williamson as NZ all time great batsmen.

    He's still good on flat wickets and that's what we'll get at the World Cup. Guptill, Kane, Ross, Nichols, Neesham, Seifert and I'd like to see Latham as a pure batting opener . That's a quality lineup. Can beat any team on their day including England if they all happen to fire.

    His performance after his eye surgery has been sensational. GOAT ODI batsman at least from NZ and only Kane will possibly overtake him.

    One of the reasons why is not considered an elite batsman is because he doesn’t pace his innings well.

    Even during his golden year, his strike rate is still around 86 which is nothing special, and this includes a few innings where his strike rate was 100+.

    He plays too many 30 (50) type knocks. When he doesn’t score big, he plays inconsequential innings and gets bogged down easily.

    However, he is still a top player and definitely underrated.
