    Um... wrong thread.

    Unless "Sachin brings out the paddle again" is an obscure metaphor for NZC being a bunch of incompetent dickwads, in which case, AWTA.

    If he doesn't step down, in a season or two, you can point out how well the T20 and ODI teams are going under their new captain, and for continuity sake, you can then give the replacement the Test captaincy also.

    It's the classic corporate move, if you don't have the balls or guts to fire someone outright, then take away their power until they resign. If they don't resign, continue to undermine them until you can fire them and no one will care because they don't have any power or influence anymore anyway.

    I know why they're doing it, I just want to hear them justify it.

    Riots, gnashing of teeth, military coups, etc. The usual thing.
    Some top cynicism here, though you forgot the part where the people responsible later slip away, their part in the saga obscured, their reputations intact, perhaps a golden handshake and a shining reference to bring to the next unsuspecting employer.

    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...

    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

    -The coach and this senior player went full speed ahead with their coup regardless of results, suggesting this has been in the works for a long time
    -Someone within NZC has leaked all of this, hanging the national skipper, the face of the game in this country, out to dry and publicly humiliated him
    -Other players around the issue are calling out their employer publicly
    -Members of NZC didn't even wait until their CEO was in the country before proceeding with aiding this coup
    -They have previous history, a long and proud history in fact, of complete and utter incompetence
    And, to my mind, one of the worst aspects of this:
    - 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.
