NZ Batsman Ross Taylor signs up for Sussex county

Sussex have announced the signing of New Zealand top-order batsman Ross Taylor as their overseas player for the 2016 season.

The 31-year-old veteran batsman, who averages 45.99 in Test cricket – has made his highest score of 290 against Australia in Perth last month.

Having played 166 ODIs and 64 T20 internationals for the Black Caps, the right handed batsman will be playing in all three formats for Sussex starting from April until late July.

“I am delighted to be joining Sussex in 2016,” Taylor said. “I’ve heard nothing but positive words said about the set up at Hove and I look forward to contributing across all three forms.

“Hopefully I can play my part in helping Sussex bounce straight back from the disappointment of relegation last season. I look forward to linking up with Luke Wright, who I have been speaking to regularly, Mark Davis and my new team-mates in April.”
