Ross Taylor joins Martin Crowe at top of NZ century scorers

From Morning Report, 8:54 am on 12 December 2017

Ross Taylor's 107-not-out against the West Indies in Hamilton yesterday means he joins his mentor, the late Martin Crowe, and Blackcaps captain Kane Williamson at the top of the list of New Zealand test century scorers, each with 17. Shortly after Taylor reached his hundred, the Blackcaps declared their second innings at 291/8, setting the Windies a whopping 443 to win. Taylor's record-equalling feat is another step on the long journey from his days as a Wairarapa schoolboy cricketer under the tutelage of former coach Dermot Payton, who joins us on the line.
