Sarfraz Ahmed lands in trouble for racist comments

CAPE TOWN: Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed might have got himself into trouble for allegedly using racist remarks against South Africa’s Andile Phehlukwayo.

He could face disciplinary action after his remarks were caught on broadcast stump microphones during the second one-day international against South Africa in Durban.

It now appears that wicketkeeper Sarfraz allegedly made derogatory racist comments in Urdu.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) will now decide if they should charge Sarfraz under their code of conduct.

“Such conduct is prohibited under the ICC’s Anti-Racism Code and must be dealt with according to the procedures set out therein,” ESPNcricinfo quoted the ICC code.
