Melbourne: Australian fast bowler John Hastings has lashed out at New Zealand for their delayed appeal that led to Mitchell Marsh’s controversial dismissal during the final ODI of the three-match Chappell-Hadlee series.

A heated argument took place between both sides when Marsh was dismissed bizarrely after big screen replays showed him jamming a Matt Henry delivery onto his foot then back to the bowler.

Henry first made a half-hearted appeal before walking back to prepare himself for the next delivery, but the crowd’s demand for a replay on the big screen prompted New Zealand to go in for a late appeal.

Describing the incident as `weird `, Hastings said he was disappointed with the way decision was made.

The 30-year-old further felt that the original appeal before the replay was `very stifled`, News.com.au reported.

Marsh’s dismissal led to a batting collapse with Australia losing their last five wickets for 27 runs.

Australia suffered a 55-run defeat in the third and the final ODI to lose the series 1-2 to New Zealand at Seddon Park in Hamilton.

The two sides will now play the two-match test series, starting from Friday at Basin Reserve in Wellington. (ANI)
