After being left out of the recently
concluded T20 matches against
Bangladesh, New Zealand Ross
Taylor expressed his disappointment.
The Black Caps made a decision to select rookie
Tom Bruce instead of Taylor, while Corey
Anderson batted at No.4, the 32-year-old’s
Taylor said after been left out “I was disappointed to be out of the T20
“I love playing all formats for my country
and to get the call on Boxing Day was
disappointing. You’ve got to respect the
“To answer it back with two 80s in the
Super Smash was good but at the same
time it is nice to be back in Test cricket.”
Interestingly, Taylor was not allowed to
take part in the Big Bash League due to
New Zealand’s play-travel rules, despite
Kiwi coach Mike Hesson having no problem
“It would have been nice to play in front of
70-odd thousand in the Melbourne derby
but New Zealand Cricket have got their
protocols on play-travel and you’ve got to
respect that,” he continued.
“Hess was all for me going but David
[White] had other reasons.
“He didn’t want me to go with the play-
travel rule, and he didn’t think it was a
good idea with such a big summer ahead.
I had a chat with him. He had his reasons.
As it worked out I probably wouldn’t have
played anyway, with the side strain [which
he picked up during the Super Smash and
from which he has fully recovered now]. It
is what it is. Reported by Cricket365
