Ross Taylor: Who is the owner of Rajasthan Royals, who scolded Ross Taylor?

New Delhi: Former New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor has claimed in a shocking revelation that he was ‘slapped’ by one of the owners of the Rajasthan Royals franchise during the 2011 season of IPL. The former captain said that he was slapped by a franchise owner after he was dismissed for zero during the match against Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) in Mohali.

Taylor made this revelation in his new autobiography, ‘Ross Taylor: Black and White’. According to the news published on ‘’, he said, ‘We were chasing the target of 195 runs and I was out without opening the account.’

“After the match, people from the team, support staff and management were at the bar on the top floor of the hotel. There was also Liz Hurley with Warney (Shane Warne). A Rajasthan Royals team owner told me Ross, we didn’t pay you a million dollars for getting out for zero. He then slapped him in the face three or four times. He was laughing and these were not sharp slaps but I am not sure if it was completely dramatic.

Taylor, 38, played for Royal Challengers Bangalore from 2008 to 2010 and was with Rajasthan Royals in 2011. He then represented Delhi Capitals (Delhi Daredevils) and the then Pune Warriors India team. “When you get a big buck, you’re desperate to prove you’re worth it,” Taylor said. The people who give you such a huge amount also have high expectations from you. It is human nature in professional sport.’
