    Oy, stop ruining my fun - there's nothing like a good conspiracy theory. Yet to be confirmed rumours that aliens carrying rectal probes were also involved .

    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.

    Pretty bloody terrible interview from Greatbatch that. Some good comments from Ian Smith though.

    They were right to look into Taylor's performance as captain, to see if he was lacking in the leadership department, and to see if that was one of the things contributing to those defeats. We've just been pushed down to ninth behind Bangladesh in the ODI rankings, so they wouldn't be doing their job if they didn't look into it. What they did wrong was put McCullum forward, thinking he was an adequate replacement after two years of sub-par performances on the field. He's shown time and time again on the field he lacks the maturity to take an appropriate approach to his primary skill, batting. So it's questionable whether he would be able to not only improve in that area, so as to be seen leading from the front, or how he'd be in a credible enough position to judge/motivate others to get acceptable levels of performances out of their primary skills when he isn't himself.

    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.

    The Dom Post is an anti boys club and they obviously felt having an Ex NZ player would be a coup. And Fairfax being borderline tabloid, he's a smart fit.

    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.

    ...and Ross Taylor, unlike NZ Cricket, has come out with something:

    https://twitter.com/RossLTaylor

    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.
    So it appears that Taylor knows as much as we do about what is going on.

    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.

    but that would make the media look bad for over hyping the situation
    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)

    yeah but we can read into some stuff! You've never made any ultimatums about Hesson or South Africa?
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Welcome to the newbies. Good to know people out there are equally upset.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.
