Playing Role

Allrounder

Bruce Taylor was a tall (6'3") allrounder who batted with aggression and bowled at fast-medium with an ability to move the ball both ways even on the least responsive pitches. His Test debut was dramatic - he smacked 105 in 158 minutes against India at Calcutta in 1964-65 and followed with 5 for 86 in India's first innings. In his next match he took 5 for 26. Thereafter, he was a regular in New Zealand's side, touring England three times (1965, 1969, 1973) , Pakistan (1964-65, 1969-70) and West Indies (1971-72). In England he struggled on pitches expected to favour him, but otherwise he was a model of consistency. He retired after his last England tour, but returned successfully for Wellington in 1978-79.
