London, Jun 7 (PTI) New Zealand great Ross Taylor feels time has come to pay cricketers adequately to keep them interested in playing international cricket or else more players will give up their national contracts.

England opener Jason Roy too gave up his incremental contact with the ECB for more lucrative opportunities in leagues around the world.
