Taylor forced out of captaincy, by text message I think, possibly by twitter.
NZ Cricket are almost as bad as the NZRFU.
Taylor and Vettori could probably have done a better job on their own...
It saddens me how poor NZ cricket are at the moment - when I was growing up, there was Fleming, Chris Cairns, (young) Vettori, Darryl Tuffey, Scott Styris. I mean, why is Chris Martin still playing cricket, the guy's 38.
Taylor was told before the last test against Sri Lanka that there were going to be changes to the team leadership. Which meant that McCullum was going to take over the ODI and 20/20 team, and Taylor was going to stay with the tests. But Taylor thought he was getting sacked as test captain too, so he got pissed off and left the team for this tour. Who the hell communicates change so badly? Especially just _before_ a test? (NB: Taylor scored 142 and 74 and led NZ to an away win in that test).
Not to mention that Jesse Ryder is at home scoring centuries for fun, and Franklin is in the team for no apparent reason....
what a fuck up all that was.
I mean, I knew we'd get dicked but this is a whole new level.
."Gavin: "I reckon we (South Africa) declare now and then bowl them out with the remaining 27 overs of the day. We'll win a five-day test match in one day." I was discussing the same thing in the office. If it could ever happen it's today. But it won't. ".
I didn't even notice this
45-10, that's a pretty great score against SA. Who got the tries?
out sucking Australia when they went all out for 47 against SA
a far cry from the days of fleming, mcmillan, parore and miley styris
