Ross Taylor on Saturday became New Zealand’s most capped player across all three formats.

Taylor achieved the feat when he stepped out for the first Test against Pakistan, which is being played at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui. This is Taylor’s 438th match for the New Zealand cricket team.

“Out comes @RossLTaylor, now New Zealand’s most capped player across all three formats with 438 matches,” Blackcaps tweeted after the dismissal opener Tom Blundell.
