    I'll be backing SA on this tour. I want NZ to be royally butt ****ed by SA, to the point that a public inquiry into NZC's shenanigans is demanded on their return.

    I've had it with those idiots. We lost Bond, Wright and now Crowe and Taylor due to NZC incompetence. It has to stop.

    Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

    Yeah, but it's still women playing cricket.

    I am no lawyer, but it seems to me that Rosco has perfectly good grounds for making a personal grievance claim against NZ Cricket. A boss was appointed who failed to support him from the get-go ("Ross Taylor was appointed by the Board"); then the boss recommended that he be sacked (with no good grounds that I am aware of); then the boss's boss (Buchanan) rejected that recommendation; and then NZ Cricket failed to provide even the slightest bit of support before accepting that rejected recommendation and sacking him.

    Any employment court worth its salt is likely to fine NZ Cricket a crapload and then require them to reinstate Ross to his previous position.

    And, this would all be hilarious to watch.

    So this press conference starts in what 10-15 mins?

    Not getting my hopes up of any real answers (beyond the expected announcement) - just corporate babble to protect those involved and bland weasly words to obfuscate responsibility.

    Exactly Straw, we're all waiting with bated breath to find out what we already know. Go figure.

    Latest rumours on radio sport seem to suggest that Taylor is likely to make himself unavailable for NZ for longer than just the SA tour.

    YAAAARRRRRRGGGGHHHHH.

    McCullum captain of all three forms.

    Taylor sitting out SA tour. Likely to return for the England series in February.

    The most recent article on the Black Caps "International team news" page is the one boasting about Ross Taylor's rise into the top 10 of the ICC batting rankings. The fact that the next article will probably announce his sacking and "decision to take time out of the game" (or whatever weasel words they will use to pretend they had nothing to do with this) will be kinda hilarious. But only in a very black way.

    White lost me at 'Ross declined the OPPORTUNITY' to keep the Test captaincy and lose it in limited overs.

    David White is lying.

    It's pretty accepted by most parties that Ross was asked to step down from TEST CAPTAINCY by Hesson before the SL tests.

    If Mike Hesson wanted Taylor to stay Test captain to focus better on it why did he ask him to stand down after the first SL test?
