IPL helps in playing longer international cricket: Ross Taylor
Delhi Daredevils player Ross Taylor said during training session to reporters, “New Zealand Cricket has done a fantastic job. We do not have such types of players which other countries have. This is good that our players come here and play in IPL. In the end, players get the chance to play longer for New Zealand by participating in the IPL”. Taylor has played for four teams in the last six season of Indian Premier League (IPL) viz. RCB, RR, DD, PWI. He has played 54 tests and 137 ODIs for NZ. He said, “Playing for three teams in three years was harmful”. He said that he would love to bat at number 4 or 5 position for Delhi.
