Ross Taylor, veteran New Zealand middle order batsman, expressed his eagerness to be back on the Cricket field. He will be taking part in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) scheduled to begin from the 18th of August with all the matches being played at Trinidad and Tobago.
Taylor also hopes to return to New Zealand after the T20 competition to a full fledged International Cricket season. Earlier today, in an interaction with news reporters at a camp for the New Zealand Cricket team at Mt. Maunganui, Taylor, who was last seen in action in New Zealand colours was in the first ODI against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground behind closed doors, right before the lockdown was implemented, said, “It has been a little bit strange over the last few months. So it has been nice to be able to train on grass. There are a lot of us going to the CPL all going well, and it will be nice to get some Cricket. Some guys won’t play until the domestic season in October.”
Taylor added that New Zealand Cricket Chief Executive David White was keeping players informed about the team’s international programme and discussions around the fate of October’s Twenty20 World Cup in Australia.
The International Cricket Council are expected to make a decision this week on whether to delay the T20 World Cup. He said, “David has been in regular contact with us in regards to the home summer and the Twenty20 World Cup. I’m not sure where it stands but hopefully in the coming days we will have a better idea.”
