Ross Taylor: Laves the field after being hit on the arm
New Zealand captain Ross Taylor will miss the rest of the third Test against South Africa after he fractured his arm.
Taylor retired hurt on 18 after taking a short delivery from Morne Morkel with the score at 145-3 in Wellington.
The New Zealand captain did not hesitate in walking from the field and his absence came as a blow for the hosts as they looked to chase down South Africa's first-innings total of 474-9.
Taylor was taken for an x-ray - with the results now putting Taylor's participation in the IPL with Delhi Daredevils in doubt.
"An x-ray confirmed that Ross Taylor has a fracture of the ulna bone of his left forearm," New Zealand Cricket's medical director Ian Murphy said.
