'Taylor's Actions Disgraceful': Sarfraz Lashes Out at New Zealand Batsman

08 November 2018

Trent Boult became the third New Zealand bowler to claim a one-day worldwide hat-trick as his side defeated Pakistan by 47 runs in the first match in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

The world's fourth-ranked ODI bowler ripped through a powerful trio of Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam and Mohammad Hafeez in his second over to light up Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Thursday (NZT).

He joined fast bowlers Danny Morrison (v India at Napier in 1999) and Shane Bond (v Australia at Hobart in 2007) as the only New Zealanders to take an ODI hat-trick.

Taylor (80 off 112 balls) and another recent arrival Tom Latham (68 off 64) anchored New Zealand's innings of 266-9 which stuttered late and almost saw another hat-trick.

"Just make him play, I guess", Boult said when asked how he approached the hat-trick delivery.

Ahmed and Wasim then raised a 103-run stand which brought Pakistan back into the match before Ahmed played on to de Grandhomme's full pitched delivery. Firstly, Lockie Ferguson dismissed Imam (34 from 36 balls), who mistimed a pull to de Grandhomme, with the catcher then nabbing Malik (30 from 50) the next over, who picked out Williamson at mid-off.

But Sarfraz, part of the team in the last 11 one-day internationals all of which Pakistan lost, want to finally win against New Zealand.

Black Caps batsman Ross Taylor topscored with 80 in their innings of 266-9.

Sayoc's lawyer, Sarah Baumgartel, didn't fight the request and may make an application for bail at a later date. He did not wear handcuffs or shackles. "Yes sir, 100 percent", he answered Magistrate Judge Robert Lehrburger.

Paceman Shaheen Shah Afridi, playing only his fourth one-day global, jolted New Zealand at the start with the wickets of George Worker (one) and Colin Munro (29).

Tim Southee (20 off 21) and Sodhi (24 off 19) each hit out late to boost New Zealand's flagging innings to a roughly par total.

Taylor had Latham in good support as New Zealand looked set for a big total at 199-3 after 40 overs before Shadab took three wickets in the 42nd over.

He dismissed Latham leg-before and did the same to Henry Nicholls (nought) the very next ball, before removing De Grandhomme two balls later when he edged to first slip without scoring.

Sarfraz termed Taylor's gestures "disgraceful" and said they were not in the spirit of the game.

New Zealand will welcome pace spearhead Trent Boult who missed the Twenty20 series due to personal reasons while also adding batsman George Worker and spinner Ajaz Patel (as a cover for injured Todd Astle) in the squad.

The remaining matches are in Abu Dhabi on Friday and in Dubai on Sunday.
