New Zealand seamer Tim Southee says he will miss Ross Taylor’s company after having played alongside the veteran batter in the national team for a dozen years. Taylor has announced his retirement from international cricket after the team’s current home season, which features the upcoming test series against Bangladesh being his farewell from Test cricket before he features in his final ODIs against Australia and Netherlands.
“It will take some adjusting to look around and not see Ross as a player or have him in this side. That assurance of having a quality player around, and the runs he’s had and the job he’s done for this side over a long period of time has been amazing,” Southee said.
The New Zealand – Bangladesh rubber, along with New Zealand’s ODI matches against Australia and Netherlands will be streamed live on Amazon Prime Video.
