New Zealand Cricket yesterday announced that BLACKCAPS captain Ross Taylor has suffered a broken bone in his left forearm.
Taylor was struck on the arm when batting against South Africa earlier today and was retired hurt on 18.
NZC Medical Director Ian Murphy said: "An x-ray confirmed that Ross Taylor has a fracture of the ulna bone of his left forearm.
"The break is not displaced which is a positive sign but we will see orthopaedic surgeon to determine the best course of action and length of time out of the game."
Taylor is unlikely to take any further part in the match.
