Summary

  • PAKISTAN cricket captain Sarfraz Ahmed has taken aim at New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor following claims of illegal bowling during the Black Caps’ 47-run victory in their opening One Day International on Thursday.
  • Taylor appeared to accuse veteran Pakistan spinner Mohammad Hafeez of an illegal bowling action during the first innings of the clash in Abu Dhabi.
  • Taylor seemed to make a “chucking” gesture to the umpires during Hafeez’s first over, mimicking a bent arm — an accusation that caused Sarfraz to have heated discussions with both Taylor and the umpires.
  • According to Pakistan cricket journalist Saj Sadiq, Pakistan management have made an official complaint to the match referee regarding Taylor’s actions, and Sarfraz hit out at Taylor after the game, labelling his actions as “disgraceful”.
  • Hafeez bowled during the Twenty20 series without incident, but Taylor’s gesture caused plenty of drama in Abu Dhabi, with Sarfraz exchanging heated words during Hafeez’s spell, with the umpires eventually having to speak to Taylor after repeated complaints from Sarfraz.
