Taylor admits still not comfortable in Kiwi dressing room following captaincy saga

Wellington, mar 27 (ANI): Former captain Ross Taylor has admitted he is still not comfortable in the New Zealand cricket team environment, suggesting the whole captaincy saga is not over yet.

Speaking a day after New Zealand's creditable 0-0 test series draw with England, Taylor was frank when questioned about his return to the Black Caps' dressing room for the their last series, having opted out of the tour to South Africa in January, Stuff.co.nz reports.

Taylor said he wouldn't say he is as comfortable as he would like to be but he guesses that will improve over time, adding there are a lot of things that have happened and maybe over the next couple of weeks or months things might get told, but now is probably not a great time to talk about it.

The conflict between Taylor and Hesson has been well documented, since the messy handling by Hesson and New Zealand Cricket of the change of captaincy late last year and the huge public support for Taylor amid debate over whose version of the story was true his or Hesson's, the paper said.

The whole saga led to Taylor missing the South African tour under new captain Brendon McCullum's leadership but he decided to return for the England series and the former captain has since said his relationship with Hesson is improving.

Taylor said he was looking forward to the tour of England in May, adding he is just enjoying the success of others at the moment in reference to the likes of openers Hamish Rutherford and Peter Fulton, two revelations of the summer. (ANI)
