New Zealand cricket

NZ stars must show Tests are top priority


In an editorial, the Herald on Sunday asks New Zealand's top cricketers to put Tests ahead of the IPL when the schedule clashes during the tour of England next year.

Much is spoken about test cricket's value; players often talk about it being the ultimate aspiration. New Zealand test and Indian Premier League regulars such as Ross Taylor, Brendon McCullum and Daniel Vettori get a chance to show their true colours in a calendar conflict between the world's most lucrative twenty20 tournament and the first test against England at Lord's. Hopefully they show one true colour: white.
