Doull debunks NZC’s claim that former Black Caps ‘blacklisting board affairs’
Wellington: Former New Zealand cricketer Simon Doull has said that despite what Chris Moller, Chairman of NZ Cricket may be feeling about the former Black Caps, they have shown plenty of interest in contributing their skills and experience. In his column in Stuff.co.nz, Doull says that he is surprised at Moller expressing disappointment that former Black Caps haven``t been putting their names forward to be involved on his organisation``s board.
Doull says “it``s become a hot potato following the Ross Taylor affair where a lack of cricket knowledge has been aired as a weakness of the board that governs the game here.” “I take umbrage at Moller``s suggestion because I think it``s a false accusation,” he writes. According to the report, Doull says “Martin Crowe, arguably our finest batsman and a great cricketing brain, has made no secret of his willingness to be involved at the top level in things off the field, including being on the board.”
“John Parker, another former Black Cap, has also confirmed that he expressed interest in being on the board without getting much feedback,” he adds. Doull also said that he looking forward to the clash between Black Caps and Proteas in three T20s starting in South Africa next weekend. “It will be good to be talking about on-field performances after the dramas of the last couple of weeks.
The Black Caps have selected a squad with some new guys carrying no baggage from the Taylor affair. The Proteas have responded by picking a T20 squad full of new talent themselves,” he says. “That gives the Black Caps a starter``s chance and the T20s loom as the best opportunity to get a bit more confidence going on the back of the remarkable test win in Sri Lanka,” he added.
“In this shortest form of the game it might take only one brilliant performance by a batsman or a stunning spell from a bowler to claim a victory rather than the sustained performances required over the five days of a test, where you need five or six players contributing heavily and where Taylor``s absence will be magnified,” he concluded.
