London: Sacked New Zealand captain Ross Taylor has admitted that he would like to captain his team again and added that he has moved on from his dressing room fallout.

Taylor was ditched in favour of current skipper Brendon McCullum soon after coach Mike Hesson took over last year, sending him into a self imposed exile during the South Africa tour, following which both Hesson and McCullum were implicated in a damning report by a former captain.

Although Taylor admitted that he did not feel as comfortable as he would had liked after the immediate aftermath of his return to the side resulted in a 0-0 draw with England back in New Zealand, he insisted that he is keeping the door open for return to captaincy as he is still young and has got some individual goals to achieve over time.

According to Taylor, time away from the squad with a stint in the ongoing Indian Premier League has given him the distance needed to get over his disappointment and start again, adding that he is feeling good about being back in the squad with both Hesson and McCullum.

Taylor further said that he is not dwelling much open his past problems so that those tensions do not linger in his mind and he can play with a free mind again.
