Australian opener David Warner regrets that India’s Mohammed Siraj and some other players in Sydney have not been treated well and apologized for it. At the same time Warner hoped that the audience in his hometown Brisbane would behave well.
During the Sydney Test, the audience twice made racist remarks against Indian players. An incident took place on Saturday in which Kuh was called offensive against Mohammed Siraj and Jaspreet Bumrah and an incident occurred on Sunday when remarks were made against Mohammad Siraj. Cricketers from all over the world have condemned these incidents. The ICC has raised a strong objection to this. The CA has started an investigation regarding this. After Sunday’s incident, police arrested six people outside the stadium.
Warner said on his Instagram post, ‘Racism and profanity are not acceptable in any environment and at any time. I apologize to him for what happened to Siraj in Sydney and hope that our audience in Gaba behaves well. ‘
