WELLINGTON: Former Australia fast bowler Dirk Nannes has slammed his countrymen’s ‘horrendous sportsmanship’ for failing to acknowledge Ross Taylor’s inspiring 290-run knock in the second Test in Perth.

Taylor broke the century-old record on Monday after scoring the highest-ever score by a New Zealand batsman overseas as New Zealand posted a 65-run lead on the fourth day.

Nannes, who donned the hat of a cricket commentator during the game, said that not one person from the Australian camp went and shook Taylor’s hand after his record-breaking innings, Stuff.co.nz reported.

On the contrary, New Zealand rushed up to shake Australian opener David Warner's hand after he was dismissed for 253 in the first innings.
