New Zealand’s legendary cricketer Ross Taylor has opened up about the racism issues prevalent in the New Zealand cricket. Taylor, in his autobiography Black and White wrote that he would often have to face racism in the form of banter.
He accused one of his team mates having told him “You’re half a good guy, Ross, but which half is good? You don’t know what I’m referring to.” It is however unclear at what level did Taylor face these issues.
He also talked about his fragile relationship with former NZ coach Mike Hesson and retired Kiwi captain Brendon McCullum.
Taylor said that ‘he felt like an anomaly, a brown face in a vanilla line-up’, referring to the lack of diversity in NZ cricket team.
