Stars and their eyes ...Ross Taylor

New Zealand cricketer Ross Taylor’s pterygium was so bad during a 2015 test series in Australia, he had to see a Brisbane optometrist between tests. The optometrist prescribed drops to relieve the problem, resulting in Taylor scoring a monumental innings of 290 for New Zealand against Australia in the second test in Perth - the highest test score in Australia by a visiting batsman and the third highest by a New Zealander.
