Ross Taylor is arguably one of the best batsmen in the history of New Zealand cricket. In ODIs, he is the leading centurion for New Zealand with 20 centuries. This year's World Cup will be the fourth mega tournament for the New Zealand veteran.

Ever since the 2015 World Cup, Ross Taylor's batting has reached a top-notch level. In 56 innings, Taylor has scored 2892 runs with eight centuries and 17 half-centuries. His incredible average of 68.86 in the last four years is only behind the Indian captain, Virat Kohli.

With such healthy records and vast experience, the 35-year old will be the backbone for New Zealand's middle-order in the World Cup. Since this World Cup might be his last mega-tournament, Taylor will look to end the tournament on a good note.


#7 Mashrafe Mortaza (Bangladesh)

DOB - October 5, 1983

Age - 35

Unlike the previous World Cups, Bangladesh will enter this year's tournament as one of the 'dark horses.' In the last two years, the team has tasted some huge victories under the leadership of Mortaza.

With 209 ODI caps, Mortaza will once again lead his team with the ball. The 35-year old veteran will look to end his International career on high by reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup.
