The way Taylor used the bowlers in the SL test was excellent. Especially his management of Astle. Probably Bond's influence - which is really where I think Taylor holds the biggest advantage a captain can have; he's humble enough to be willing to learn and implement other people's ideas. Obviously I don't actually know this as I'm not in the team but just from the way he talks he seems this way.
I would be really interested to know where Bond stands on this ordeal. He's proven his integrity countless times, and he's had a big enough career-ruining run in with NZC to not automatically side with the administrators...
