Cricket : Hazlewood charged after DRS drama
Hazlewood and his teammates believed they had Williamson out in the last over before lunch, but when Smith called for a referral after the original not-out ruling, third umpire Richard Illingworth ruled ball had hit bat before thudding into the batsman’s front pad.
After a wicketless first session, Hazlewood’s offensive language was caught by the stump microphones at the non-striker’s end.
Josh Hazlewood has been fined 15% of his match fee after the fast bowler.
“It’s unfortunate because these guys are so invested in the game, they’re trying so hard and they just forget they have to watch themselves in that situation,” former Australia opener Chris Rogers told Optus Sport’s Across the Ditch.
