Taylor on course to match it with the world’s best

KIWI batsman Ross Taylor can add his name to a list of cricketing greats when he plays in New Zealand's next Test against India at Eden Park in February.

Taylor, dumped as Black Caps' captain after the tour of Sri Lanka in November, 2012, took his tally of Test runs in 2013 to 866 from 10 matches after notching centuries in each of the three Tests against the West Indies. The Kiwis claimed the series 2-0 after winning the third Test on Sunday.

A fourth in a row against India would make Taylor (pictured) the 16th player to score a hundred in four successive matches.

Only four players have gone beyond that. Don Bradman leads the way with six, while Jacques Kallis, Mohammad Yousuf and Gautam Gambhir have all managed five.

Taylor's focus will now switch to the five-game series of one-day internationals against the West Indies which starts at Eden Park on Boxing Day.
