Australian Josh Hazlewood's foul spray: 'Who the f*** is third umpire?'

Australian bowler Josh Hazlewood's behaviour has turned septic before lunch on the fourth day of the second test against New Zealand.

The visitors were unable to take a wicket in the morning session as Kane Williamson (89) and Corey Anderson (35) added 76 runs to extend New Zealand's innings to 197 for four, a lead of 62. Their fifth wicket partnership is worth 92.

Right-armer Hazlewood, bowling around the wicket to Williamson, struck the No.3 on the toe and appealed for lbw in the final over before lunch.

He appealed and umpire Ranmore Martinesz gave it not out. Australia had used up their final decision review, after earlier wasting one when Williamson edged onto his pad.

When the original decision was upheld due to doubt whether Williamson had edged it onto his toe, Hazlewood advanced towards Martinesz and exclaimed: "Who the f*** is third umpire?"

For the record it is Richard Illingworth.

Regardless, an appointment with match referee Chris Broad will no doubt await after irrefutable audio evidence of dissent.
