Usman Khwaja, the Pakistan born Australian cricketer has denied from his involvement in the current racism storm in the English county i.e the racist sledge by Andrew Gale. On Monday, UK’s Daily Mail reported Khwaja as the player who went to the umpire and told him about the racist sledge made by Yorkshire’s captain on Ashwell Prince.
In an exchange of words between Ashwell Prince and Andre Gale, Gale was reported to have sledged about Kolpak and then saying Prince to return back to his own country. Kolpak is the rule which has allowed several players to play for England , those having some past links in Britain.
Theincident occured during a match between Lancashire and Yorkshire . Prince was batting and Khwaja was alongside him and it has been reported that Khwaja reported the incident to umpires Steve Garrett and Steve O’Shaugnessy. Andre gale is set to a disciplinary action by the ECB later this week. Also, he was not allowed to take part in the last two rounds of the County season.
After Yorkshire, under coach Jason Gillespie won the trophy, ANdre Gale was not allowed to lift it. But Ahwell Prince has some other opinions about it. he feels that there was nothing racial about this .
He said that Gale had a go at him and he also gave it back.
