This is wild speculation though.
Yeah, I reckon Southee would feel a bit aggrieved about how he'd been handled at times during Taylor's reign too, rightly or wrongly.
I'm getting the overwhelming sense of this "senior players" thing to be largely guff though. Hesson has wanted McCullum at the top ever since he arrived and that's the reason this is happening; nothing more. The more we hear on the matter, the more we keep hearing from people who support Taylor, at least at the current time, and that includes the players. I don't think there's been a coup from inside the team at all.
