McCullum claims Taylor’s return in Kiwi squad ‘seamless’
Sydney: New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum has claimed his predecessor Ross Taylor’s return in the Kiwi dressing room has been seamless. The 28-year-old top-order batsman is back in the Black Caps fold for the first time since he was relieved of the captaincy two months ago. Taylor, who made himself unavailable for the tour of South Africa, would resume his international career in Auckland on Saturday in the first of three Twenty20 matches against England.
While Taylor on Thursday described his relationship with coach Mike Hesson, who had pushed for the captaincy change, as a work in progress, McCullum is confident the issue will not have an impact on performance. McCullum said everyone`s fine, and he added Taylor has come back into the group and fitted in seamlessly, adding they are expecting a big performance out of him. McCullum said there had been no need for the team to deal with the issue this week, as they had addressed it in South Africa only, when it was playing out. McCullum said Taylor and Hesson were working together professionally and he believed everything would heal over time.
