"The last 18 months has taken it out of me and I think a lot of people in Australian cricket". He added that he had been considering the move since before the release of the Longstaff review which brought the eventual downfall of Peever following pressure from New South Wales.
The absence of Taylor will arguably leave a bigger hole for CA to fill than that created by Peever's resignation, especially when it comes to the various on- field matters referenced by The Ethics Centre.

Taylor had been touted as a possible successor to board chairman David Peever, who relented last week to pressure to resign after a highly-critical report into the conduct and governance of Cricket Australia. "For the sake of [interim chairman] Earl Eddings and the board going forward, I hope it stops with me".
