Profile

Brendan Taylor has several strokes to draw upon as a batsman, but perhaps the most important aspect of his game is his ability to read, and adapt to, a match situation. That feature of his cricket was on show when he shot to prominence at Cape Town on September 12, 2007, his ice-cool 60 not out carrying Zimbabwe to an incredible five-wicket win over Australia in the ICC World Twenty20. Taylor marshalled a tense run-chase with the sort of sang froid that few had ever credited him with.
