Cricket Fraternity & Fans Go Berserk As Jasprit Bumrah & Siraj Got Racially Abused In INDvsAUS Test

The third test match which is being played at Sydney between India and Australia has reached at a crucial situation with India needing 309 runs to win the match with one day game remaining. At the end of the day 4, India was 98/2 with Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara at the crease.

However, an unfortunate incident has certainly decreased the fun and excitement of the test match. As per the reports, on the day three of the test match, the Indian cricketers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj were racially abused by the Australian spectators present at the stadium during the Australian innings.

Both the players informed the skipper about the incident and then the skipper along with senior players had a chat with the on-field umpires. This happened just few minutes before the end of the day 3 and the Indian management lodged an official complaint with the Cricket Australia in regard to this matter. It is being said the International Cricket Council has also taken the matter into consideration and it will soon take an action in this regard.

Things turned uglier when a similar sort of incident happened on the day 4 as well and Mohammed Siraj was not only racially abused but he was targeted with abusive words as well. It happened in the second session of the game when Mohammed Siraj was fielding at the fine leg boundary. Siraj and the skipper Ajinkya Rahane had a good talk with the on-field umpires and Siraj also pointed towards those people who spoke the words. Six people were taken out from the stadium by the New South Wales Police.

Here you can watch what happened:

The Head of Integrity and Security of the Cricket Australia, Sean Carroll said that the Cricket Australia condemns such incidents in the strongest terms possible, adding that if someone is involved in racist abuse, that person is not at all welcomed in the Australian cricket.

Some former Aussie cricketers such as Michael Hussey and Shane Warne have also condemned the incident and called it disgusting on the part of the troublemakers. Some former Indian cricketers and people from cricket fraternity took to Twitter to express their annoyance:

Here are some reactions from the Indian cricket lovers:
















Racial abuse is completely unacceptable and we also demand that all those who are involved in this incident should be dealt in a strict manner.
