Ross Taylor reveals how he dealt with the “annoying” David Warner: “I put him in a headlock and then…”

Although Ross Taylor told David Warner what he had done to him, he said that the move was successful for him since it allowed him to maintain control over the southpaw.

Ross Taylor, a former player for New Zealand, is the author of an autobiography titled “Ross Taylor: Black And White,” in which he details a number of incidents from his playing career. Taylor’s book included a number of alarming revelations, like the time when he recalled being smacked by one of the owners of the Rajasthan Royals after a poor batting performance, as well as the controversy surrounding New Zealand’s captaincy. In the same post, Taylor also discussed the time he put Australia’s opener David Warner in a headlock because Warner was being unpleasant to him in the lift during an Indian Premier League season. Taylor said that the incident occurred during one of the seasons of the IPL.

While Taylor was telling Warner what he had done, he claimed that the technique was successful for him because it allowed him to maintain control over the southpaw. It is important to remember that both players formerly competed for the Delhi Daredevils franchise (now Delhi Capitals).

“While we were having a few drinks together one evening, Warner started to get a little too boisterous. By the time we boarded the elevator to head up to our rooms, he had worked it up to the point where it was both clever and annoying. I grabbed his head and gave him a few warnings not to argue, then I released the hold. “Oh, f—k,” he exclaimed, “I forgot you Islanders are powerful.” “I forgot you Islanders are strong.” It’s remarkable what can be accomplished by putting someone in a headlock and punching them in the head a few times: David and I have been on excellent terms ever since.

This year marked Taylor’s final year playing cricket at the international level. Nearly the course of his over 16-year career, he played for New Zealand in 112 tests, 236 one-day internationals, and 102 Twenty20 internationals, and he amassed a total of 18,199 runs.

During his time in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Taylor was a member of the Royal Challengers Bangalore team from 2008 till 2010, after which he joined the Rajasthan Royals. After that, he played for both the now-defunct Pune Warriors India and the Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League.
