Ross Taylor’s Identical Fifties

 

Ross
Taylor has achieved one of the rarest feats in Test cricket.

 

He
scored 76 runs in both innings against Zimbabwe in the ongoing Test
in Bulawayo
. He's only the 15th batsman ever to score identical
scores of fifty or more in the same Test.

 

Duleep
Mendis of Sri Lanka scored 105 twice in the Chennai Test of 1982, making it the
highest identical scores in a Test.
