Ross relishing turning the tables

13th January 2018, 15:01 by Jack Ogalbe

New Zealand veteran Ross Taylor admits he is enjoying proving that age is just a number following his upturn in form.

The batsman scored 153 runs during the three-match ODI series clean sweep of the West Indies, a tally that brought his international 50-over average up to just under 45.

Taylor has been working hard on his game amidst jibes from his team-mates that at 33, he is now in the twilight of his career.

With him showing no signs of slowing down, the man nicknamed 'Too Easy' says he is enjoying showing his team-mates that he still has the ability to play at the top.

He said: "I've been working hard over the last couple of months and it's nice for that work pay off.

"But I'm not getting any younger, I'm only 33 but my teammates think I'm 38, so it's nice to prove them wrong."
