IND vs AUS: Indian players were subjected to racial abuse in Sydney confirms Cricket Australia

Indian cricket team lodged the complaint against the crowd for their racial abusive remarks on Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj during the third Test at Sydney. Twitter got flooded in the support of young talents and smashed the authority for not taking care of the things, after which Cricket Australia officially announced that they will take the required steps to prevent these shameless acts in the future.

On Wednesday, CA’s Head of Integrity and Security provided an update on the investigation into crowd behavior during the Sydney Test.

“Cricket Australia has submitted its report into crowd behavior at SCG during the third Test against India to the International Cricket Council,” a statement from Cricket Australia read.

“CA confirms that members of the Indian cricket team were subjected to racial abuse,” CA’s head of security Sean Carroll said.

“CA’s own investigation into the matter remains open, with CCTV footage, ticketing data, and interviews with spectators still being analyzed in an attempt to locate those who are responsible.

“CA’s investigation concluded that the spectators filmed and/or photographed by media in the Brewongle Stand … did not engage in racist behavior.

“CA has a zero-tolerance policy towards discriminatory behavior in all forms and, as hosts of the Border-Gavaskar series, apologizes to the Indian men’s cricket team.”

“Australian crowd started abusing me, it made me mentally strong. Not letting t+it hamper my performance was my prime concern. My job was to inform that I was being abused, I told the entire matter to captain Rahane. Umpire told us that you can walk off the field and leave the game but Ajju Bhai told the umpire that we will not leave, we respect the game,” Siraj told reporters at Press conference in Hyderabad on January 21.
