Following a complaint of racism raised by Indian cricketer Mohammed Siraj, senior teammates Virat Kohli and Ravichandran Ashwin spoke out. Siraj alleged that he faced racial abuses from some spectators. Six people were subsequently removed from the ground during the Test match in Australia's Sydney. Kohli called it the 'absolute peak of rowdy behaviour'. Ashwin said that there had been similar episodes in Sydney in the past. The ICC also 'strongly condemned' the incident.

Cricket is the global game and it is a privilege to have touring teams in a person's country and respect must be given. Much love from an Aussie in the USA.

  • This is what will happen when the people sitting in Government are RACIST. We all know Coalition is in power in NSW and they gave Ticket to Pauline Hanson initially and whether She (Or her Policies/ Party) is/are racist or not? I will leave that to your judgement. Though Australians like to boast that they are not racist and run current affair programs about it on TV to claim "They are not a racist Country". And also then in the same program (on some other day) they have audacity to claim that their meal (Aussie Hamburger) is most healthy one (that they buy in food courts of shopping mall). Australians must remember their history of 'Aborigines Genocide' or 'White Australia Policy' or more recent 'Stolen generation'. Even within white Australian community we must remember the racism faced by 'east Europeans' after second world war. The tragedy is that the children of these East Europeans practice Racism and do not realize it. We as migrants have faced it everywhere, be it public or workplace.
