Unless "Sachin brings out the paddle again" is an obscure metaphor for NZC being a bunch of incompetent dickwads, in which case, AWTA.
What's wrong with Taylor keeping the Test Captaincy to prove a point?
Go to RSA, score a ton of runs, win a game. Maybe score a ton of runs after than in all formats, lead the Test team out of the hole it's in, get awards and accolades from all over the world, and generally prove a point that the board and coach are all basically dicks and wrong about him?
Actually...I can see what's wrong. They'll just claim it's all Hesson's work and that stripping Taylor of captaincy in ODIs and T20 are what made him so good in Tests and thus it was a genius move. Plus Taylor will have to put up with McCullum and Hesson during all this...
Jeez, big wicket for England there...
Iain O'Brien has his twitter box going I hear. Time to go for a look.
edit: found the goods. Very buys tweeter tonight is the great man.
Is there a way I can go back and find my tweet that said I didn't like the appointment of Hesson??
@sportdaggers crazy stuff…. NZC and coach looking a bit silly at the mo! Go to http://Stuff.co.nz/sport/cricket - have a read..
@jaysonryan not much I can add…. another NZC fail.
@sportdaggers so sad! NZC just going about things wrong, again. A bit like ECB and Pieterson this summer… strange stuff!
@sportdaggers egos! damn egos!
My predictions for SA tour
NZ to win test series 2-0.
McCullum to score a hundred in every innings and take a 10 wicket bag in the second test to boot.
Kallis to recognise McCullum as the superior cricketer
Taylor and Hesson to make out on public television.
Bahnz to overdo the Nitrous-oxide and be rushed to hospital.
Woosh... serious lack of actual information here. Would really love to know what's going on.
Anyone here able to install a secret camera at NZC headquarters? Hack into the NZC mainframe using top secret codez? Bug a Hesson and McCullum love-in in the changerooms? Get the inside story on what Rossco was really doing with all that KFC?
I want answers dammit
- No-one from NZC has had the basic decency to say a single thing in support of ANY of the players. I mean any halfway decent CEO, coach or Chair of the Board would have said "he is our best batsman and contributes a great deal to the New Zealand side" - even if they had already made up their mind to sack him.

Ross won't tour. He will refuse a compromise offer today to captain the Test side, host Veitch claims as his mail. Team Ross continues slipping titbits that portray Hesson as being essentially made of human parts.
