David Warner, the Aussie opener has asked for an apology from Mohammed Siraj and the Indian cricket team for the racism that visitors faced during the Sydney Test. He also expects the home crowd to behave in the final game and avoid using racist slurs.
On Day-3 of the Sydney Test, the Indian cricket team filed a complaint to the match referee David Boon. During the game, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj were racially abused by the spectators. On the very next day, things slipped out from the hands when Mohammed Siraj raised his voice and asked his skipper as well as an on-field umpire to stop the game as he was continuously receiving racists slur from a group of spectators.

The on-field and fourth umpire took everything in their hand and the game came down to a halt for about 10 minutes. Soon, the police evicted some spectators from the ground. Recently, India’s renowned journalist revealed that the spectators called him ‘brown dog’.
After the conclusion of the game, David Warner took to his official Instagram handle and shared a post saying that it was great to be back in the side. He feels that it was a great game of cricket and congratulated Team India for giving a tough fight.
“It was great to be back out on the park again this week. Was not the ideal result for us but this is what Test cricket is all about. 5 days of tough cricket and well done to our guys for working as hard as we could, congrats to India in the way they fought hard for the draw, and that’s why we love this game, it’s not easy. Move onto Brisbane now for the decider and what a place the Gabba is to play at,” David Warner wrote on his Instagram.
Warner also felt sorry to Mohammed Siraj and Indian cricket for facing racism during the game. The southpaw is expecting better behavior from the home crowd in Brisbane.
“I’d also like to say sorry to @mohammedsirajofficial and the Indian team as racism, and abuse is not in any way acceptable or tolerated anywhere at any time, and I would expect better from our home crowd,” he added.
