Taylor becomes NZ’s leading ODI run scorer

Ross Taylor became New Zealand’s leading run-scorer in ODIs after he crossed Stephen Fleming’s mark of 8,007 during the third ODI against Bangladesh in Dunedin. Taylor reached the mark in his 218th ODI appearance with a single to fine-leg off Mehedi Hasan in the 33rd over. It was immediately cheered with loud applause and a standing ovation from the University Oval crowd. Taylor had, earlier in the 28th over, become the second New Zealand batsman to reach 8,000 runs with a trademark slash through point off Mashrafe Mortaza. He has reached both milestones quicker than Fleming, who took 280 matches.
