Ross Taylor hopes the runs will continue to flow for "a few years" after becoming New Zealand's leading one-day international run-scorer.

Taylor surpassed Stephen Fleming's tally of 8007 ODI runs by making 69 in an 88-run thrashing of Bangladesh in Dunedin on Wednesday.

The former Black Caps captain has 8026 to his name from 218 matches in the 50-over format for his country and is optimistic there is plenty more to come.

"I definitely would have taken that when I played my first match donkey's years ago," said Taylor, who turns 35 next month.

"If you play long enough I guess these records come along but it's nice to set the bar for the next guy. I'm still enjoying myself and hopefully I've still got a few years in me."

Fleming praised Taylor after losing his record to his former team-mate.

He tweeted: "Congratulations @RossLTaylor amazing last 18 months and stellar career to date. Great player that I hope will set the bar high for the next. Well deserved and good luck over the next few months."

Victory for New Zealand sealed a 3-0 whitewash over the Tigers.
