Former New Zealand batter Ross Taylor has recently made shocking allegations on the Indian Premier League franchise, Rajasthan Royals owners in his autobiography, 'Ross Taylor: Black and White'. The Kiwi cricketer recalled the time when one of the owners of Rajasthan Royals slapped him across the face.

Ross Taylor played for the Rajasthan Royals in the 2011 IPL after playing for the Royal Challengers Bangalore from 2008 to 2010.

Taylor was quoted in his autobiography by stuff.co.nz., "Rajasthan played Kings XI Punjab in Mohali. The chase was 195, I was lbw for a duck and we didn't get close. Afterwards, the team, support staff and management were in the bar on the top floor of the hotel. Liz Hurley was there with Warnie. 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."

"He was laughing and they weren't hard slaps but I'm not sure that it was entirely play-acting. Under the circumstances I wasn't going to make an issue of it, but I couldn't imagine it happening in many professional sporting environments," Taylor wrote.

After leaving RR, Taylor went on to join Delhi Daredevils in 2012 for a season then played for Pune Warriors India in 2013 before returning to Delhi in the IPL 2014.
