New Delhi: Wicketkeeper-batsman Taylor played his last international match for Zimbabwe on Saturday after signing a three-year deal with Nottinghamshire.
Stand-in skipper Taylor smashed 138 off 110 balls with 15 boundaries and five sixes as Zimbabwe made 287 all out against defending champions India in Auckland for his eighth one-day international century.
It was Taylor`s second successive hundred at the tournament but it was too late to save Zimbabwe as their defeat ny Ireland last week had already ended their quarter-final hopes.
Here is how the cricket fraternity reacted to Taylor's memorable knock on his last outing in national colors.

Well played, Brendon Taylor. It's a failure of Zimbabwe Cricket that they can't hold him back.
