Ross Taylor sustained an injury during the second day of first Test match against South Africa in Dunedin.

New Zealand, on day two of the first Test against South Africa, are dealt a huge blow as their senior batsman Ross Taylor slump to an uninvited injury and later helped him off the field. Going by the look of his walk, he doesn’t look good, suggests his team-mate and fast bowler, Trent Boult.

During hosts’ first innings, Taylor and Kane Williamson were smoothly paddling the innings forward when the veteran sustained a calf injury. The incident happened during the 43rd over when Taylor was limped off the ground with the help of physio. He was batting on 8 then.

Speaking post the day’s play about how concerned the side would be by not having him (Taylor) around, pacer Boult said he will be missed and losing a big player might cost too.

“It’s a shame for us. He is a big player. He is obviously disappointed. The way he walked off, it doesn’t look too good. We will see tomorrow.”

Earlier this year Taylor became New Zealand’s highest century maker (16), one ahead of his ideal Martin Crowe.

Though, New Zealand on day two ended with a scoreline reading 177 for three with 131 as a trail.
