New Zealand’s batting giant Ross Taylor has been signed up as an overseas player with County cricket club Nottinghamshire for the first half of the England domestic season, the club announced on Thursday (March 08).
As per the announcement, the 34-year-old will play for the club till the end of June which will make him available for the club for eight matches.
And this is not the first time when Taylor will play for a County club as earlier in 2010 he has played for Durham and then for Sussex in 2016 and 2017.
On joining the club, Taylor said, “I'm really excited about joining Nottinghamshire as they return to Division One of the Specsavers County Championship, and I hope I can play an important part in helping them become re-established at the higher level. It's also great to be joining a team who are defending a white ball trophy, with the club having won the Royal London One-Day Cup last summer, and hopefully the team can mount a strong challenge again.”
"I've enjoyed playing against England for New Zealand in the early part of this year, and I'm looking forward to testing myself in the early-season English conditions when I arrive at Trent Bridge for the start of the new season," he added.
