Harbhajan Singh Slammed Australian Fans For Throwing Racial Abuses At Team India: The Australian crowd has been creating trouble for the Indian cricket team during the ongoing third Test match at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah are two of the four-Indian cricketers, who have complained to match officials about alleged racist abuse and foul language directed at them.
On Saturday, the first incident took place when the Indian cricket team was heading towards the dugout. Siraj was called Monkey, ‘wa**er, Mother F… by a section of drunk supporters.
Now on Sunday, six spectators were escorted from the SCG, and play was stopped for nearly 10 minutes after Mohammed Siraj complained of another instance of racial abuse from fans. Police were quick to escort the six spectators from their seats after the game was stopped by Siraj. As per the ‘Sydney Morning Herald’, the 6 men are being interviewed by the police on the ground.
Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh, who faced his share of battle with the Australian crowd during his decade-long career, also took to his Twitter and condemned the ugly incident that took place at the SCG.
Harbhajan Singh alleged that this isn’t the first time that the Australian crowd has hurled racial abuse on the visitors. He revealed how the crowd has been a regular offender. He also recalled his own personal experiences when he was abused because of his religion, his color. Bhajji wrote:
“I personally have heard many things on the field while playing in Australia about Me My religion My colour and much more. This isn’t the first time the crowd is doing this nonsense. How do u stop them ?? #AUSvIND,”
