It’s not every day you drop a batsman and then suffer the pain of watching him score a triple hundred. Ishant Sharma put down Brendon McCullum off his own bowling. At last count he had bowled 45 overs without a wicket in New Zealand’s second innings in Wellington. His new-ball partner Zaheer Khan has bowled 51, that includes a wicketless spell of 41 overs.

In between that bowler massacre, we had this incident where Ishant mouths off after being picked for runs by McCullum. Simon Doull wonders aloud on air if the abuse was directed at Zaheer, who was slow in fielding the ball after a tiring spell. Or was it directed at McCullum?

For those unfamiliar with Hindi, the abuse contained references to female relatives and male genitalia.
