The international cricket council (ICC) has recived a report on Pakistani cricket team’s captain Sarfraz Ahmed’s racist comments about South African player Andile Phehlukwayo. Now cricket lovers eyed on, the decision of ICC.
But before any decision of ICC, Faf du Plessis has said South Africa has forgiven Sarfraz Ahmed for his on-field racist taunt during the second ODI in Durban. “We forgive him because he said sorry,” du Plessis said after South Africa’s training session on Thursday, according to cricinfo. “He has apologised and taken responsibility for it. It is out of our hands and ICC will have to deal with it now.”
“When you come to South Africa, you have to be very careful when you make racial comments,” du Plessis said. “I am sure he didn’t mean it like that but he has taken responsibility and we will have to see what the outcome of that is going to be. This is not something that we take lightly as a team, but the fact that he apologised straight away means there is regret on his part.
Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed came under fire after his racist comments about Andile Phehlukwayo, which were caught by stump mic during South Africa’s batting. Sarraz on Wednesday (Jan 23) extended apology for his offensive comments.
