New Zealand Coach Mike Hesson confirmed that his Teams senior batsman Ross Taylor has vision problems, who will see an eye specialist before the second Test match against Pakistan.
New Zealand won first test match against Pakistan by eight wickets, where Taylor did not bat in his generic fourth number batting position in the second innings of the match due to his lack of runs in the recent tests, which is a big concern for Ross.
Hesson said about the New Zealander, Taylor had his eyes checked before the start of the match and it certainly showed he needed to see a specialist. It just appears the eyesight has deteriorated. Ross was keen to get it seen to.”
But there will be no decision made on whether Taylor will play or not in the second Test match against Pakistan, which will be played from Friday in Hamilton.
The 32-year-old Kiwis key batsman has an average of 45.95 but unfortunately in the recent times he has only averaged just over 10 in his last 10 innings, who scoring just 11 in his only knock against Pakistan.
According to Hesson Taylor had a check-up six months ago and there were no issues then.
Mike said, Theres a growth thats come across a little bit. Its been fine for a long time but its part and parcel for any human being. You do different tests, you want to make sure things are all in order.”
During the Pakistan Test Taylor fielded at first slip despite eyesight concerns, where the batsman took a catch to remove Babar Azam off Colin de Grandhomme in the first innings.
