Summary

  • Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed has slammed New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor for making a “disgraceful” throwing gesture when facing the bowling of veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez during the one-day international in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
  • Taylor appeared to query the bowling of part-time offspinner Hafeez whose action has been deemed illegal by the International Cricket Council several times in recent years.
  • Sarfraz had a heated exchange with Taylor and the on-field umpires as New Zealand, fired by a hat-trick by returning paceman Trent Boult, won the series-opener by 47 runs.
  • “I will say that Taylor’s action was not correct,” Sarfraz said.
  • “Hafeez’s action has no problem and (Taylor) was trying to create an issue without a reason.”
