The Kiwi Player had earlier announced that he would be retiring from the International Cricket’s longer Format after the Bangladesh Tour Of New Zealand and the Guard of Honour was given in the same pursuit.

With New Zealand already in a strong position thanks to a dominant show from the top order, Taylor played his shots and helped his team cross 400 with a quickfire 28 off 39 balls, hitting four fours in his innings. He fell to fast bowler Ebadot Hossain, after which the Bangladesh players shook his hands and he was giving a standing ovation by the crowd in Christchurch.
