New Zealand head coach Mike Hesson has confirmed that senior batsman Ross Taylor has vision problems and will be soon seeing an eye specialist before the second Test of the ongoing two-match series against Pakistan.

The New Zealand head coach said the 32-year-old had his eyes checked before the start of the match and “it certainly showed he needed to see a specialist.”

“It just appears the eyesight has deteriorated. Ross was keen to get it seen to,” Hesson was quoted as saying by Sport24.

“There’s a growth that’s come across a little bit. It’s been fine for a long time but it’s part and parcel for any human being. You do different tests, you want to make sure things are all in order,” Hesson said.

The 32-year-old, who averages 45.95 in his Test career, has only averaged just over 10 in his last 10 innings, scoring 11 in his only knock against Pakistan.
