Ross Taylor Was ‘Slapped On The Face 3-4 Times’

Mumbai: Former Black caps batter Ross Taylor has made a startling revelation in his autobiography that arrived at the stands earlier this week.

Taylor recalled in the autobiography “Black & White” an incident when one of the Rajasthan Royals owners slapped him across the face after he was dismissed for nought while chasing against Punjab Kings, who were later named Kings XI Punjab during his stint with the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise. He said that he was not sure “it was entirely play-acting”.

“Rajasthan played Kings XI Punjab in Mohali. The chase was 195, I was lbw for a duck and we didn’t get close,” stuff.co.nz quoted Taylor as saying in his autobiography.

“Afterwards, the team, support staff and management were in the bar on the top floor of the hotel. Liz Hurley was there with Warnie,” he further wrote.

“One of the Royals owners said to me, ‘Ross, we didn’t pay you a million dollars to get a duck’ and slapped me across the face three or four times,” the batter divulged.

“He was laughing and they weren’t hard slaps but I’m not sure that it was entirely play-acting. Under the circumstances I wasn’t going to make an issue of it, but I couldn’t imagine it happening in many professional sporting environments,” the Kiwi batter wrote.
