Former New Zealand captain Martin Crowe says Ross Taylor will want to make amends this week as he returns to Lord's for the Investec Test match with England.
He's looking forward to his second chance
"The anticipation of going to Lord's is probably the premier one," the 50-year-old told Lords.org.
"I speak with Ross Taylor and I know he'll be looking forward to going out to bat at Lord's. He messed it up in 2008 but I know he's looking forward to his second chance."
Taylor, who is a former MCC Young Cricketer, failed to make a real impression during the drawn Test match between England and New Zealand in 2008 but five years later returns as one of the touring sides star players.
Crowe added: "I played four Test at Lord's. Two of them I regard as the two greatest memories I've had."
Despite never playing in a winning side at the Home of Cricket, Crowe has twice managed to get on the Honours Board after scoring 106 in 1986 and then hitting 142 eight years later in 1994.
The Black Caps are in England for a two-match series with England ahead of the Ashes Test series later in the year.
