Dainik BhaskarFeb 21, 2020, 09:39 AM IST Sports Desk. Ross Taylor of New Zealand has become the first player in the world to play 100-100 matches in all three formats of cricket (Test, ODI and T20). He achieved this feat while playing his 100th Test against India on Friday. Only behind them are Rohit Sharma of India and Shoaib Malik of Pakistan. Both of them have played more than 100 matches in ODIs and T20s. However, Shoaib has played 35 and Rohit has played only 32 Tests. In this sense, both are far away from this record.
Taylor has previously scored 7174 runs in 99 Tests at an average of 46.28, including 19 centuries and 33 half-centuries. He scored 8570 runs in 231 ODIs, including 21 centuries and 51 half-centuries. Taylor has scored 1909 runs in 100 T20s with the help of 7 half-centuries. The Kiwi batsman also played his 100th T20 against India on February 2 at Mount Mounggui.

Kiwi batsman made his debut in 2006
Taylor said, "I think I still deserve this team. I am still doing good fielding and want to score more runs. I am happy with it. "Taylor made his ODI debut against the West Indies in November 2006. He is also the highest run-scorer for New Zealand in Tests and ODIs. However, in the T20s they are behind former captain Brendon McCullum and Martin Guptill.
