Sarfraz apologises on twitter for controversial on-field taunt

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed has finally broken his silence and apologized via Twitter after the controversial on-field taunt during the 2nd ODI against South Africa.

Just after the Rahul-Hardik controversy, another controversy has hit the cricket world and this time the culprit is the Pakistan captain.

It all started when Sarfraz said to the South Africa all-rounder Phehlukwayo during the 37th over “Abey kaale, teri ammi aaj kahaan baitheen hain? Kya parwakeaaye hai aaj?” which means in English – “Hey black guy, where’s your mother sitting today? What [prayer] have you got her to say for you today?”

The comments from Sarfraz can clearly be labeled as racism and the International Cricket Council (ICC) have already taken note of the comment.

“The ICC and the match officials have noted the alleged incident. They have started the necessary procedures to investigate the matter. We can only comment once we have received the results of the investigation. Any further clarification/updates have to go through the ICC,” an ICC spokesperson said.

Meanwhile, Sarfraz has apologized on his twitter and claimed that it was not directed to anyone. He posted three tweets where he apologized to everyone.
