The case of Sydney test racism sure seems to have irked all the Indian fans. Despite complaints, the game was halted at Sydney Cricket Ground as racial abuses were hurled at Mohammed Siraj. Siraj was fielding on the fine leg boundary when the came was paused.
Following the ordeal, he along with skipper Rahane had a talk to the umpire and the game came to a stop for 8 minutes. In fact, the security also asked 6 people to exit the ground after the incident. Cricket Australia’s Head of Integrity and Security also condemned the act in his statement. He mentioned, ”If you engage in racist abuse, you are not welcome in Australian cricket.”
As of now, CA is still waiting for an investigation on the matter reported on Saturday. Once the people are identified, those responsible will be subjected to storng action under the Anti-Harassment Code. Many belonging to the cricket federation also condemned the Sydney test racism. Virendra Sehwag, Harsha Bhogle, VVS Laxman, all took to Twitter to express their opinion.
Now, amid all of this, while everyone is angry, Twitterverse is sure missing captain Kohli. Virat is known for his aggressiveness and never say never attitude. However, what he is loved most for is not putting up with what needs to be answered back. Some of the Tweets have caught our attention after the Sydney test racism case.

It was on Saturday itself that BCCI lodged a complaint after Siraj and Jaspirt Bumrah complained. On day 3 stumps, Rahane reported the same to the umpires. As per PTI reports, it was a drunk spectator that hurled abuses. Well, the case of Sydney test racism is indeed one that should be looked down upon. While it is true that many miss skipper Kohli, this shouldn’t have happened.
