Can Ross Taylor Turn His Form Around Against India?

New Zealand are well and truly on the back foot after they were comprehensively beaten in all three test matches against India, followed by a loss in the first of five ODI’s against the in-form home side. In the firing line for the Black Caps at the moment is Ross Taylor, an experienced campaigner that has strangely-failed to produce anything out of the ordinary with the bat so far. 

Touring India is one of the hardest things to do for a visiting team, especially if you’re a batsmen out of form and looking to solely survive on defensive shots on a spinners paradise. For Ross Taylor, it looks like he worked himself into a form slump in Centurion back in August against South Africa, being run out for just one run in the first innings and finding himself trapped on the crease for a duck in the second innings. Almost a month later, Taylor finds himself in a similar situation having scored just 89 runs in six innings with a dismal-average of 14.83. To make matters worse, the 32-year-old was dismissed for a duck in the first ODI at Dharamsala adding to his tour of misery.

Apart from Tom Latham, the Black Caps top-middle order looks extremely vulnerable with the likes of Guptill, Williamson and Taylor all struggling to make any real contribution to the scoreboard. The only thing separating Guptill and Williamson from Taylor is a 70 each to their name,  and with Rohit, Kohli, Rahane and Dhoni on the other side of the fence they can’t afford to slip up much more. At the moment it doesn’t look like Ross Taylor has indicated that his form is returning, it looks more likely that he’ll have to play himself into form with a gritty knock that may come across as a bit scratchy, whatever it takes I suppose.
