Ross Taylor has been named in the New Zealand squad for the two home Tests against Bangladesh. Taylor had scored a hundred in the second Test against Pakistan before undergoing an eye surgery in December and missed the subsequent ODIs against Australia and the ongoing T20 series against Bangladesh.

“It’s great to have Ross back,” New Zealand selector Gavin Larsen said. “He has a phenomenal record that speaks for itself and he’s coming off a terrific hundred in his last Test. He’s obviously been an essential part of our Test side for a long time and brings invaluable experience and knowledge to the group.”
