Wellington: New Zealand’s top 20 cricketers have been asked to give their views on the leadership abilities of Brendon McCullum and Ross Taylor before the board names Daniel Vettori’s successor.

They have been also asked to give their views as the culture within the national side, as part of their end-of-season reviews.

New Zealand Cricket has to decide between Brendon McCullum and Ross Taylor to captain the Blackcaps.

John Buchanan, New Zealand’s director of cricket, confirmed on Sunday that the subject of captaincy had been broached with the players, but said there was no question of the players picking the man for the job.

“We are not necessarily canvassing them on a voting process,” Buchanan was quoted as saying in the New Zealand media.

Buchanan, national selection manager Mark Greatbatch and coach John Wright are all currently interviewing players. (IANS)
