    Has Ross Taylor acquired two new names?

    Last I looked, New Zealand batsman and one-day superstar Ross Taylor was most certainly RL (Ross Luteru IIRR) Taylor. Now I look and both on CA and CI he is LRPL (Luteru Ross Poutoa Lote) Taylor. When did this happen? I'm used to it with Bangladeshis and Pakistanis, and I'm used to Sri Lankan names changing every 5 minutes. But Kiwis?

    Since he was born I guess. CI and CA must have been wrong. "One-day superstar"? You trying to be funny?

    Always dangerous to quote WikiPedia but:

    Taylor's full name is Luteru Ross Poutua Taylor, however sources have inaccurately recorded his name as Ross Luteru Taylor. This is because Taylor has grown up answering to both Luteru and Ross in cricket and did not realise he needed to write down his full name for the official New Zealand Cricket records when he was asked to fill in a questionnaire at a first-class match early in his career.

    Ever since Matt Currie mentioned his name to me I've believed Taylor had it in him to be the next Roger Twose. Big call, of course, as Twose was a bit special.

    Who else currently averages over 40 in New Zealand domestic cricket? Who else has ever done over more than a handful of games? Not many I'd guess.

    These Polynesian guys often have a few names, and sort of shorten them down. Lillian Thomson's quote from Wikipedia sounds fairly correct.

    Chris Harris retired at the end of last season, otherwise he'd make the criteria. He's the only one that I can think of.

    John F. Reid is the only kiwi batsman ever to average more than 40 in ListA. Taylor averages under 40 in all forms

    Averages almost 55 for CD in List-A OD cricket as of this post, though his record (in 2 innings) for North Island is awful.

    Scored just 29 runs in 5 innings for New Zealand A mind. Has also played 3 games for "New Zealand Black" whoever they are and done not-much.

    Chris Harris

    Also, even if you do include New Zealand Black and North Island, Taylor averages 46.92.

    They played in the Top End series back in 2006 when we sent two teams over. New Zealand Black and New Zealand White.
