A hobbling Ross Taylor helped New Zealand keep their one-day international series against England alive with an incredible innings in Dunedin on Wednesday.

Taylor, who missed the third ODI due to a quad injury, hurt himself again late in his brilliant innings, but he managed to see the Black Caps to a five-wicket victory.

He also became the second batsman in ODI history, after Sourav Ganguly, to score a century a day before his birthday.The star right-hander made a match-winning 181 not out off 147 balls – featuring 17 fours and six sixes – and was ably supported by Tom Latham (71) in a 187-run partnership for the fourth wicket in the fourth ODI at University Oval.
