Vimes tells it how it is:
Lankans 18/3, my drop cost nothing but it was a Ross booster who held on. Bitch please, flat-out sooner it was grassed. Make me captain tho, k thx.
Pretty obvious this coup has been in the works for a long time. They had today as a concrete date for months, and even gave Taylor the chance to jump before being pushed.
Taylor, being the hero he is, ruined their fun by scoring 200+ runs and winning the game right before coup day. They thought on the back of our worst losing streak ever it would be an easy coup.
In fact the more I think about it, if Hesson and Mc**** (can we add his name to the filter please?) were so sure we would lose both tests before they even began, that would have leaked into their attitude and imo it's almost as bad as match fixing.
Can't wait for Ross's press conference sometime this week. Fingers crossed he goes down swinging.
That along with the timing of the decision have been the main areas of concern here. There was wide spread optimism about New Zealand cricket, not only because of the win in Sri Lanka, but the manner in which we won, and who contributed to that win. Williamson, Taylor, Boult, Southee etc are all young, and showed under Taylor's captaincy they could win games. They should have known this decision would back-fire after that, and they didn't show the competency or awareness to hold off on the decision.
Think Flem has it bang on about the Otago club believing itd be an easy coup, but Ross' form and Colombo means they're going to look the bad ones.
Can we have an update on this? For those of us not following it closely...

...and Ross Taylor, unlike NZ Cricket, has come out with something:
So it appears that Taylor knows as much as we do about what is going on.A lot of speculation out there. I have heard from the CEO once. I haven't made any decisions. At no time have I given NZC any ultimatums about Hesson or Me or South Africa.
What's the best way out of this? Maybe David White should just come out and say as previously announced, NZC agreed to review things after the first test. Taylor is continuing as captain. End of story. Looking forward to building on the 2nd test result in SA.
While i would love that to happen, there has been far to much talk for this to be forgotten. Even if Taylor continued as captain he would be unsettled by the lack of stability.
Imo McCullum needs to be dealt with for undermining Taylors position or something along the lines (if it turns out he has been causing a problem)
