Profile

New captain Ross Taylor has always been an entertaining and aggressive batsman but is about to learn the difficulties of mastering two crucial jobs in Tests. Daniel Vettori stepped down after three years in charge at the end of the 2011 World Cup and the 27-year-old’s only full-time warm-up before the Australia series was a short tour of Zimbabwe.

As a batsman, Taylor is feared for the fearless strokeplay that brought him five hundreds in his first 30 Tests. After making his debut in South Africa in 2007, his peak came in England with 154 not out the following year. He also impressed the Australians with a blistering 138 off 104 balls in Hamilton last year. An average in the low 40s seems a touch on the low side for a batsman of this quality.
