Former captain Mohammad Azharuddin on Sunday said that hurling racial abuses on Indian players while playing in Australia has become “a regular affair” and urged the ICC to find a way to end the menace forever.
Indian cricketers, especially pacer Mohammed Siraj, endured racist slurs for a second successive day in the third Test against Australia in Sydney, causing a brief halt in fourth day’s play, expulsion of some spectators from the ground and an all-round condemnation of the incidents.
“Every time we play with Australia, something of this thing happens. It is becoming a regular affair. Nobody should tolerate all these things,” Azharuddin told PTI on the sidelines of a local cricket tournament at Margao.
“The ICC should look into the matter and quickly resolve this problem forever,” he added.
