Taylor suffered an injury during his match-winning 181 not out against England in the fourth One Day International on Wednesday.
Taylor battled through the injury moments after bringing up his 19th One Day International century at Dunedin’s University Oval.
Coming to the crease with his side two wickets down for only two runs, he and captain Kane Williamson put on 84 for the third wicket, before Williamson was caught behind off the bowling of England paceman Ben Stokes.
Tom Latham then joined him in the middle and the pair put a further 187 runs on the board to set up the victory. The partnership is a new New Zealand record for the fourth wicket partnership against England.
