Twitter Explodes As Virender Sehwag, VVS Laxman And Many React After Racial Attacks On Team India

Team India once again experienced racial attacks during the SCG days. Twitter exploded after Mohamed Siraj told the umpires that a certain section of the crowd was again saying some unacceptable things without any fear. Former India legends such as Virender Sehwag and VVS Laxman slammed the SCG crowd and tagged the incident as ‘unfortunate’ and ‘rubbish’.

The SCG test will forever be incomplete without controversy when Australia takes on India. When the rivalry of players on the field has somewhat become friendly the Australian crowd has lost the plot and attacked Indian players with racial exploitation. Even on day 2 Indian bowlers Bumrah and Siraj complained about it after which team India official complained.

The story was the same on day 3 as the hostile Australian crowd again crossed their limits and targeted Mohammed Siraj. There was a little halt in play as the match officials tried identifying the people at fault who were later shown the exit of the stadium.

Meanwhile, as expected Twitter was buzzing as not only Indians but also former Aussie players condemned the behaviour of the crowd. Shane Warne who’s doing commentary during the match said that “severe punishment” should be given to the members of the crowd who hurled racial slurs at Siraj and Bumrah.

“Very unfortunate with what some of the Australian crowd has been doing at the SCG and spoiling the vibes of a good test series,” wrote former India opener Virender Sehwag on Twitter.

“Very unfortunate to see what’s happening at SCG. There is no place for this rubbish. Never understood the need to yell abuse at players on a sporting field. If you’re not here to watch the game and can’t be respectful, then pls don’t come and spoil the atmosphere”, tweeted former India batsman VVS Laxman.

“Unacceptable behaviour there is no place for racism, I hope this is dealt in the most severe way”, tweeted former Australia all-rounder Tom Moody
