    Ross Taylor likely to be shafted from the captaincy?

    According to the below, it's likely to be confirmed later today.......

    Likely Taylor won't be captain during SA tour
    Nick Walker, Newstalk ZB December 3, 2012, 2:37 pm

    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.

    They've been on this for a while, so it's not surprising. It does seem strange timing-wise though. We've just convincingly won a test match in Sri Lanka, and Taylor contributed to that quite a lot.

    Ross Taylor should tell them to go and stuff it right where the sun don't shine, what an unbelievable ****ing farce. McCullum has to be one of the biggest parasites going around, as well as his cronies. If what they're saying is true, that Taylor felt he was being undermined by certain senior players then they should never play for New Zealand again. Hell afaic it's no different to fixing.

    Oh FFS.

    NZC and hangers on are the kings at shooting themselves in the foot.

    My new found optimism, gone. It was a pleasant 2 or 3 days though.....

    As one of the reasons for the captaincy change, I bet they bring up the argument that they don't want the captaincy to drag his performances with the bat down, despite the fact he comfortably averages more as a captain. A thousand runs with an average of fifty is not too shabby.

    Wait the guy who drew a Test series in Sri Lanka is getting shafted for the lunatic that is McCullum even after leading the side quite well on a tricky tour and making important runs, what are you Australian selectors?

    If true, what a way to ruin a team who is just starting to re-build and look relatively positive.

    Absolute muppets imo, the NZC board know nothing about cricket and this decision would show that. It would be them believing in media pressure that they aren't performing due to the captain. Everyone is responsible for thier own ****ing performances.

    McCullum is a cancer on this cricket side, he's been working behind the scenes to shaft Rosco ever since his man Hesson became coach.

    **** McCullum and **** NZ cricket.

    Yup he and Hesson have been bum-chums for some time now. If this is confirmed, look for Ian Smith to absolutely lose his rag on his live sports radio breakfast show tomorrow. I know he's a massive Ross Taylor fan.
