Taylor becomes New Zealand's all-time leading run-scorer in ODIs
Ross Taylor became New Zealand's all-time leading run-scorer in one-day internationals during Wednesday's encounter against Bangladesh.
Taylor, 34, went past 8,000 ODI runs and then eclipsed Stephen Fleming's record of 8,007 for the Black Caps.
The right-hander needed 51 in the third ODI in Dunedin to get past Fleming and he reached the milestone by whipping Mehidy Hasan to fine leg for a single.
In his 218th ODI, Taylor fell for 69, moving onto 8,026 runs in the format at an average of 48.34.
