It appears likely Ross Taylor won't be captain of the Black Caps for the tour of South Africa later this month.
Months of speculation around his job at the helm appears to have told, with Taylor to be stripped of the role when the touring squad is named in the coming days.
Cricket commentator Bryan Waddle says it looks like Taylor's been shafted.
Waddle says the job he's been doing is as good as could be expected, and getting rid of him now is counterproductive.
Brendon McCullum becomes the obvious candidate to take over the captaincy.
