Sarfaraz Apologised In 3 Tweets After Facing Criticism For Using Wrong Words For Andile Phelukwayo

Indian players Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul are already out of the team for speaking inappropriate words in Karan Johar’s talk show Koffee With Karan and now a cricketer from neighborhood is also feeling sorry for uttering wrong words.

We are talking about Pakistani skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed who made a derogatory and racist comment during the 2nd ODI which was against South Africa. The stump mic caught Sarfaraz saying this in reference to South African cricketer Andile Phelukwayo:

“Abey kaale, teri ammi aaj kahaan baitheen hain? Kya padhwa ke aaye hai aaj?”

His comment roughly translates to,

“Hey black guy, where is your mother sitting today? What have you made her read (prayer) for you today?”

The Pakistani captain faced heavy criticism from all the corners for his irresponsible behaviour and now he has apologised for the same on the micro-blogging site Twitter in a series of tweets.

He extended his apologies to any person who got offended with his comments and he made it clear that his words were not directed towards any particular person and he never wanted to make anyone upset. Sarfaraz Ahmed also said that he didn’t even want his comments to be heard or understood by the opponent players and fans. He further stated that he would always appreciate the camaraderie of his colleagues from all around the world, just as he has been doing in the past. At the same time, he also assured to respect and honor them on and off the field.

His first tweet read, “I wish to extend my sincere apologies to any person who may have taken offence from my expression of frustration which was unfortunately caught by the stump mic during yesterday’s game against SA. My words were not directed towards anyone in particular and…”

In the second tweet, he wrote, “I certainly had no intention of upsetting anyone. I did not even mean for my words to be heard, understood or communicated to the opposing team or the cricket fans. I have in the past and will continue in future to appreciate the camaraderie of my fellow cricketers from…”

This is what he said in his third tweet, “…across the globe and will always respect and honour them on and off the field.”

Andile Phelukwayo was the Man of the Match in that match as he helped his team win the match by scoring 65 runs and taking 4 wickets.
