Ross Taylor Return to NZ against Eng Series

Previous skipper Ross Taylor has returned to the New Zealand squads for this month ODI and T20s against England.

Taylor did not tour South Africa after he was dumped as captain late last year (2012) by Coach Mike Hesson following the tour of Sri Lanka, an incident which prompted an authority crisis for New Zealand Cricket. The 28-year-old right-hander has only recently returned to first class cricket for Central Districts.

Ross is a world class batsman who is a key part of this Black Caps side, Hesson said in a report.Otago opening batsman Hamish Rutherford, who had a strong domestic T20 competition, is the only uncapped player in the squads, all rounder Andrew Ellis returns to both after missing the South African tour with injury.

There are a couple of changes that have been forced through injury but really we want to be seen to provide continuity from 1series to the next, chief selector Kim Little john said. We are however looking at developing talented youngsters and finding a new crop of all-rounder in our build-up to the Champions series in June and the 2015 Cricket World Cup.
