India suffered a 4-wicket loss in the first ODI of the three-match series against New Zealand at the Seddon Park in Hamilton on Wednesday. However, veteran Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh took a chance to take a dig Ross Taylor for his unique celebration after he scored a match-winning century for New Zealand.

Harbhajan’s tweet started with praise for the New Zealand batsman, but it later turned into a joke pointing towards Taylor. His tweet read: “What a knock @RossLTaylor well done. Tell me why do u put the tongue out every time score 100. Good game of cricket”.

Indian Premier League franchise Chennai Super League, for which Harbhajan Singh plays, joined the trolling of Taylor with a comment, saying: “What a naak!”

According to a report published on cricket.com.au in 2015, Taylor had revealed the secret of his ‘tongue poking’ celebration which is related to his daughter Mackenzie.

Taylor had said, “Right back when I was at age group I got dropped a couple of times when I got hundreds. Then I poked my tongue out – (after) I got dropped – against Australia, my second ODI hundred. Ever since then my daughter has been pretty happy when I poke my tongue out and that’s pretty much for her as well.”

On Wednesday, Taylor scored an unbeaten knock of 109, including 10 boundaries and four sixes, to help New Zealand win the series opener and take a 1-0 lead. For India, Shreyas Iyer scored his maiden international century as the visitors posted 347/4 in 50 overs after being asked to bat.

However, the home team — after having suffered a 0-5 loss in the five-match T20 International series to India — bounced back and chased down the challenging target with 11 balls to spare.
