Yes true, right back at the start of his international career he did seem like more an ODI option. Decent average but not brilliant SR. Combine Taylor with other similar players and can see why we get bogged down in the middle overs sometimes. I'm sure I'll cop flak for this but the sort of Hamish Marshall-like player who could score singles and 2s at a run-a-ball is seriously missing from our ODI middle order. He did do this a few times before becoming ****.
I can't explain his poor T20 international record compared to IPL - seems like an anomaly.
That's why I'm so keen on Ryder to move to the middle order. Yeah he's not very quick between the wickets and yeah he seems to have converted himself into somewhat of a big filthy slogger lately for some reason but when he's batting well he's the best in the country at effortless scoring singles off good deliveries.
Batting first gun. I feel more comfortable chasing but hopefully we put up a decent score.
Pitch looks a good'un.

Yeah, it's a disappointing turnout so far. Looks like only a couple of thousand.
wtf? A perfect Saturday afternoon against top class opposition and we get the smallest crowd of the season, including all of the Zimbabwe games?
GAGF Wellington ****s
My brother plays club cricket in Wellington - of course they have scheduled matches for today so he can't go to the ODI.
I have to disagree with Richards on that. It was a clear wide. The batsman didn't move out of his stance at all.
