Rajasthan Royals Owner Slapped Me: Ross TaylorHAMILTON, (IANS) – Former New Zealand batter Ross Taylor has said in his autobiography that he was “slapped” by one of the owners of the Rajasthan Royals franchise three or four times during the 2011 IPL season. In his new autobiography titled ‘Ross Taylor: Black & White’, Taylor revealed the incident took place following a 48-run defeat for Rajasthan Royals against Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) in Mohali. One of the Royals owners said to me, ‘Ross, we didn’t pay you a million dollars to get a duck’ and slapped me across the face three or four times. There has been no comment yet from Rajasthan Royals on Taylor’s revelations. After spending the first three seasons of the IPL at Royal Challengers Bangalore, Taylor was acquired by Rajasthan Royals for $1 million at the player auction ahead of the 2011 season.
