According to reports from Australia’s leading newspaper Sydney Morning Herald, South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir has become the latest victim of racial abuse by the Australian supporters at the Manuka Oval in Canberra. Some racially insensitive remarks were made on him during the third ODI against South Africa last night.

The Pakistan-born spinner who follows Muslim as his religion, did well to calm down after getting angry for goaded about stroking his beard by a small group of fans at Manuka Oval while fielding on the third-man boundary. Moments later he heard another fan from the same group yell out: “Why don’t you go stroke your pet camel?”

An frustrated Tahir turned to the spectators, glared at their direction but did not file an official complaint to the on-field umpires. This is not a new gesture from the Australian crowd as they have dont this to the likes of Sri Lankan legendary spinner Muttiah Muralitharan, English batsman Kevin Pietersen and Virat Kohli in the past.

It was a forgettable day for the leggie as he injured his knee and didn’t come to bat in his side’s 73 run loss to Austraia. He is in doubt for the fourth one-day international in Melbourne on Friday.
