Brendon Taylor is one of Zimbabwe’s best batsmen in international cricket. Not only in Zimbabwe, his name will be among the best in world cricket. The former captain has played many memorable matches in his 16-year career. This time, the 34-year-old tail is ending that shining chapter.
He made the decision on social media on Sunday (September 12).
“With a heavy heart, I am announcing my last match for my beloved country on Monday,” he said. 17 years of ups and downs … which taught me to be humble. Always reminded me, how lucky I was to have been in such a position for so long. Since my debut in 2004, my goal has always been to keep the team in the best position. Hopefully, I’ve been able to do that. ‘
Taylor made his Zimbabwean debut in April 2004, playing an ODI against Sri Lanka on home soil. Abhishek was out for zero runs. Later this version has enriched his career. He has scored 6,007 runs at an average of 35.60 in 204 matches, which is the second highest for the country. If he can score 110 runs in the last match yesterday, he will surpass Andy Flower and reach the top.
Taylor’s 11 centuries in ODIs is Zimbabwe’s record. He also holds the record for most centuries in international cricket for a team. Andy Flower surpassed Andy Flower’s record of 16 centuries in three ODIs against Pakistan last year. That was Taylor’s 16th century in three editions.
Taylor led Zimbabwe in the first round from 2011 to 2014. Get the captaincy again earlier this year. He was the team’s highest run-getter in the 2015 World Cup. He scored 433 runs in 8 matches at an average of 72.18. He became the first Zimbabwean batsman to cross the 400-run milestone in a World Cup. He scored a century in two consecutive matches. No other Zimbabwean batsman has done so before in the World Cup.
