Twitter Fumes At Aussie Crowd Who Racially Abused Siraj, Bumrah


Indian cricketers Mohammad Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah were subject to racial abuse in the ongoing test match against Australia. The test is taking place in Sydney and there have been multiple reports suggesting the players were abused racially on Day 2, 3.

The team management has officially lodged a complaint on the matter to match referee David Boon today. At stumps of third day, there were lot of discussions around Indian dressing room.

The match officials along with stadium security came to query Bumrah and Siraj on the incidents. Both the players have seemed to answered their queries. Meanwhile, Randwick end of the ground is where the abuse came from as per the reports.

Indian skipper Ajinkya Rahane and veteran cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin spoke to umpires Paul Reiffel and Paul Wilson and informed them about the incident. The matter will most likely be heard by ICC soon.

“Bumrah and Siraj were called monkeys, wanker and motherf***** by the people almost throughout the time they were fielding. Captain Ajinkya Rahane spoke to the match officials and then the team management went up to Boon and lodged a formal complaint,” team sources told TOI.

BCCI is in touch with Cricket Australia over the incident and soon ICC could take over the matter into their own hands. Meanwhile, the SCG officials are trying to identify the people who tried to abuse the players.

Despite the COVID crisis, Australia have allowed crowds into the stadium. With recent corona crisis around Sydney, only 10000 people were allowed. This meant everything can be identified much more clearly.

It is disappointing to see the few people tarnishing the image of their nation. However, this is how fans responded to the news.
