South Africa vs Pakistan: ICC, match officials investigating Sarfaraz Ahmed's racial remarks incident

South Africa won the 2nd ODI by five-wickets from Pakistan and the scoreline now reads a 1-1 and with three more ODI to go, this could shape into an interesting series. But more than the victory, Sarfaraz Ahmed’s racist comments towards South African all-rounder are the talk of the town at the moment.

Sarfaraz called Phehlukwayo ‘kaala’ and asked ‘where was his mother’. Sarfaraz caught on stump mic saying, “Abey Kaaley, Teri Ammi aaj kaha baithi huyeen hain, Hain??? Kya parhwa ke aya hai aaj tu?”

The sledge can be translated literally to: “Hey black guy, where’s your mother sitting today? What [prayer] have you got her to say for you today?”

The ICC and match officials have noted the unwanted incident and have started the investigation, according to the reports in South African website Independent Online (IOL).

After the game, South Africa manager Mohammed Moosajee said, “The ICC and the match officials have noted the alleged incident. They have started the necessary procedures to investigate the matter. We can only comment once we have received the results of the investigation.”

Sarfaraz Ahmed could face severe disciplinary actions if he is found guilty in this incident according to the ICC laws. Four to eight suspension points will be imposed on him and in that case, the Pakistan captain will face the ban of four ODIs/T20Is or two Tests (for four suspension points) whichever comes first.

Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed has apologised by writing on Twitter after being accused of making a racist remark towards South African player Andile Phehlukwayo.


Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed wrote on Twitter, “I wish to extend my sincere apologies to any person who may have taken offence from my expression of frustration which was unfortunately caught by the stump mic during yesterday’s game against SA.”

He continued, “My words were not directed towards anyone in particular and I certainly had no intention of upsetting anyone. I did not even mean for my words to be heard, understood or communicated to the opposing team or the cricket fans.”

“I have in the past and will continue in future to appreciate the camaraderie of my fellow cricketers from across the globe and will always respect and honour them on and off the field,” wrote Sarfaraz on his Twitter account.

South Africa won the match by five wickets to level the five-match series at 1-1, with Phehlukwayo named man of the match after taking four for 22 and then scoring 69 not out.
