Chris Martin still has a part to play with NZ Cricket

6:27 am on 5 September 2012

The New Zealand cricket captain Ross Taylor is excited about the future of his pace bowling stocks, and isn't giving up on Chris Martin just yet.

Taylor was happy with the efforts of Trent Boult, Tim Southee and Doug Bracewell in the second test against India which they lost by five wickets.

37-year-old Martin didn't play the match, having also been dropped for the second test in the West Indies a few weeks ago.

Taylor doesn't believe Martin's international career is over and says the veteran has plenty to offer the young bowlers in the squad.
