Watch – Sarfraz Ahmed Makes Racist Remarks against Andile Phehlukwayo, Could be in Trouble
Pakistan National Cricket Team captain, Sarfraz Ahmed could land himself in hot waters over his racist remarks against Andile Phehlukwayo. During the second ODI between Pakistan and South Africa in Durban, Sarfraz taunted Andile in a manner which seemed racist to the listeners. Plus what’s worst for him? It got recorded on the stump mic as well. However, no official word has come out yet, but if it does, Sarfraz Ahmed could be in trouble.
Andile Phehlukwayo – the star of the night
Pakistan had won the first ODI and to level the series; the hosts had to come up with an impressive performance. South Africa’s all-rounder, Andile Phehlukwayo stood out as the difference between the two sides. With the ball, he had attained the figures of 4/22, while with the bat, Phehlukwayo scored an unbeaten 69. His partnership of 127 with Rassie van der Dussen helped the Proteas chase down 204 runs with five wickets in hand.
Earlier in the day, South Africa had Pakistan on the mat before a 90-run stand between Sarfraz and Hasan Ali got them back in the game. Though the captain scored 41 runs, Hasan Ali hit his second half-century; scoring 59 off 45 balls. Courtesy their handy knocks, Pakistan managed 203 on the board.
‘Abey kale…’ – Sarfraz to Andile Phehlukwayo
Halfway through the chase at the Kingsmead, Phehlukwayo inside-edged one off Shaheen Afridi to deep fine leg for a single. Batting at 50, he ran towards the non-striker’s end when Sarfraz uttered some offensive words for the player. In Urdu, Sarfraz was caught saying,
‘Abey kaale, teri ammi aaj kahaan baitheen hain? Kya parwa ke aaye hai aaj?’
When translated in English, it meant,
‘Hey black guy, where’s your mother sitting today? What [prayer] have you got her to say for you today?’
While doing the commentary, Mike Haysman asked Ramiz Raza, ‘What’s he saying there Ramiz’? In reply, the cricketer-turned-commentator said, ‘Difficult really to translate that,’ Ramiz replied. ‘It’s a big long sentence.’
