If anyone is to resign it should be Hesson.
This is so stupid and lacking in common sense it is absurd....
It is clear if Hesson has been advocating McCullum it is essentially because they are mates, which is appalling. I think Taylor is a better captain than him anyway. He's certainly the better batsman.
Somebody has to...
Really feel for Taylor. Was very pleased to see in that article that when asked to step down by Hesson he said no. Great to see he still wants the job, despite being undermined by various forces inside and outside the team (I'm trying just to stick to known facts here - who is most responsible out of McCullum, Hesson, Vettori, other players, the board, White, Buchanan, former players, rabble-rousers in the media... I do not know).
I suspect Taylor could be a good captain. I can very much envisage him not being party to the matey cliquey culture though - is just there to do his job, and a good job at that. Being somewhat thoughtful (not a quality NZ generally looks for in leaders) I'm not surprised that he struggles to deal with people who exude a great volume of words at great volume, and probably aren't inclined to do a lot of listening. In my opinion if he felt he really owned the team, which cannot be true to date, and was given a couple of years with the right mentoring it would bring the best out of him.
I have no inclination to support a McCullum led team.
I really hope Taylor leaves NZC and finishes his career doing the rounds on the lucrative T20 circuit. NZC have treated him like **** so why should he give them anything in return?
If my employer promoted me and I did a reasonable job, then they turn around and demote me just because my new boss wants his friend in the position, I would quit in heart beat. There's no way I would put up with that ****.
I'm not saying that New Zealand's poor performances are Taylor's fault, or that I support his replacement by McCullum, but it's important to remember that the doom and gloom thread is there for a reason. Performances in the last year have been historically ****.

I've convinced myself this is an elaborate troll to inspire Taylor to score four consecutive hundreds in South Africa. The guy always performs with his back to the wall.
