Taylor Replaces Vettori as Captain of New Zealand Cricket Team

June 21 (Bloomberg) -- Ross Taylor will replace Daniel Vettori as captain of New Zealand’s cricket team after beating Brendon McCullum to the job.

The appointment of the 27-year-old Taylor, who had been Vettori’s vice-captain, was “fully endorsed” by the board of New Zealand Cricket, the governing body said today in a statement. Vettori stepped down following this year’s World Cup.

“The process to select the captain has been robust,” Justin Vaughan, New Zealand Cricket’s chief executive officer, said in the statement. “We wanted to make sure the right people were involved and that we appointed the right man for the job. I’m sure we have done that.

Middle-order batsman Taylor, who averages 41.12 in 30 Tests and 36.80 in 107 one-day internationals, already led his country in 11 one-day games and three Twenty20 matches.
