After Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed’s racist comments about Andile Phehlukwayo, caught by stump mic during South Africa’s batting, Pakistan Cricket board wows to bring moral reforms in Pakistani cricketers and to practical implementation of this promise Pakistan Cricket Board has approved Anti-Racism Code for players, which will immediately come into effect with the beginning of Pakistan Super League 2019.
The code is quite similar to the International Cricket Council’s Anti-Corruption Code with some little modifications, said an official press release which came after the governing body’s 52th meeting in Lahore. The decision was made during the Board of Governors’ detailed and constructive discussion on the performance of the Pakistan cricket team and players’ selection criteria, a press release from the PCB said.
Sarfraz was caught clearly on the stump mics saying, “Hey black guy, where’s your mother sitting today? What [prayer] have you got her to say for you today?” Commentator Mike Haysman asked his fellow commentator Ramiz Raja, “What’s he saying there Ramiz?” “It’s a big long sentence. Difficult really to translate that,” Ramiz replied.
