Hockey player became Dhansu Batter, abused in the dressing room then became dreaded, was lying in IPL
Veteran cricketer made serious allegations against fellow players
Batter who played in IPL made a sensational disclosure
New Delhi. New Zealand veteran batsman Ross Taylor started his career playing hockey. Later, at the behest of his father, he stepped into the cricket field. Ross Taylor, known for his reliable and quick batting, has been a part of many teams in the IPL. Taylor, who made his IPL debut in 2008, scored 1017 runs in 55 league matches at a strike rate of 123.
The former Kiwi batsman made several revelations in his autobiography ‘Ross Taylor – Black and White’. Ross Taylor told that he was abused in New Zealand’s dressing room. According to Taylor, he was abused when he got out by playing a bad shot, while other players did not say anything to him. In fact, Ross Taylor, who belonged to the Samoan island, looked a little different from the other players of the team, so he had to face racist comments. Ross Taylor was the second player from the Samoan Islands after Murphy Sua to play for New Zealand.
‘Team owner slapped’
Ross Taylor also made sensational revelations about IPL in his autobiography. Taylor was in the team of Rajasthan Royals in 2011. According to Taylor, I got out on zero in the match against Punjab. Our team lost the match. After the match, one of the Rajasthan Royals owners told me, Ross, we didn’t pay you a million dollars to get out for a duck. After this, he started laughing by slapping me three-four times on my face. However, those chants were not sharp.

According to Taylor, I’m not sure it was completely drama-acting. In those circumstances I wasn’t going to make an issue of it, but I couldn’t imagine that happening in a professional sports environment. Ross Taylor, who made his international debut in 2006, scored 7683 runs in 112 Test matches. He has more than 8 thousand runs in 236 ODIs. Ross Taylor played 102 T20 International matches, in which he scored 1909 runs at a strike rate of 122.
