Dive In

Cricket Australia condemns in the strongest terms possible all discriminatory behaviour. If you engage in racist abuse, you are not welcome in Australian cricket… As series hosts, we unreservedly apologise to our friends in the Indian cricket team and assure them we will prosecute the matter to its fullest extent.

Australian cricket officials issued an unqualified apology for repeated instances of racist heckling that marred the third test match in Sydney. On Saturday, Jasprit Bumrah and Siraj filed a complaint with the match referee. But that didn’t stop the abuse which continued on Sunday—until security personnel tracked down and escorted six members of the audience.

But the death has raised serious questions about how the company recruits its volunteers—and who it targets, i.e. poor, illiterate Indians who sign up without information or proper consent.
