Taylor warns of more sordid tales

Taylor warns of more sordid tales

Ex-New Zealand skipper Ross Taylor, replaced as captain late last year, admitted on Wednesday he was not entirely comfortable in the team following a dramatic Test series draw against England.

Taylor also indicated there was more to the way he lost the captaincy to Brendon McCullum than has been revealed.

“I wouldn’t say I’m as comfortable as I would like to be but I guess time will tell,” Taylor said.  Taylor would not go into details but said the full story of his demotion may yet be made public.  “There’s a lot of things that have happened. Maybe over the next couple of weeks or months, things might get told but as of now, it’s probably not a great time to talk about it,” he said.

Taylor  praised the performance of his New Zealand team-mates, who came within a whisker of recording a rare Test series win against the powerful England side on Tuesday.

“As one of the senior batters, it’s nice for others to come in and score some runs. Something I haven’t done very much in a New Zealand team is have to wait a couple of sessions to bat. Hopefully I can start getting used to that trend,” he said.
