Profile

Chris Taylor's career promised much but has failed to deliver consistently for Gloucestershire. He made a century on debut at Lord's in 2000 - the first player to score a hundred in their maiden match on the famous ground. It was also the first time a Gloucestershire's debutant had scored a century. HIs record first-class score came the season after when he made 196 against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge.
