Jack Taylor has stepped down as Gloucestershire’s T20 captain
Jack Taylor has stepped down as Gloucestershire‘s T20 captain with immediate effect. Miles Hammond will take over as skipper for the remainder of the 2023 T20 Blast campaign, with Saturday’s (June 17) clash with Kent at Bristol his first outing at the helm. Taylor replaced Michael Klinger as captain in April 2020 and guided the club to Finals Day for the first time since 2007 later that summer. However, Gloucestershire failed to reach the knockout stages in 2021 and 2022 and have started the 2023 campaign with a mixed run of three wins and four defeats.
Taylor Gave the Reason for Quitting the Captaincy
Taylor gave the following reason for quitting: “I’ve loved every second of leading our T20 team over the past four seasons. One notable accomplishment was returning to Finals Day in 2020 after a 13-year absence. “Over the past several seasons, I have established a distinct role in the T20 team, but I feel like it’s time for me to take a step back and concentrate on my own game. “My ultimate objective is to produce match-winning performances for the club in T20 cricket and to improve upon my 50-over campaign from the previous season.”
It has been a pleasure working with Jack as captain for the past two years, said head coach Dale Benkenstein. He has been an outstanding captain for Gloucestershire in T20 cricket and will keep playing a significant role in the group.
