A cricket fan, Krishna Kumar, who was current on the stadium on Day 2, 3 and 5 of the Sydney Take a look at detailed what occurred on Day 3, when Group India filed an official grievance of racial slurs hurled at a few of its gamers.
“Was really shocked to see the ugly side of racism on Day 3, and I have seen a lot of reports that some of the spectators were drunk and that could be the reason. With any form of racism, there should be no excuse attached to it, and it all began not at 4-5 pm (as some media reports have said), but at 10:30 am. So, this was not just under the influence of alcohol. At 10:30 am I don’t expect people to be drunk.
“On Saturday, starting from 10:30, there were chants of ‘s*****s, s*****s, s*****s going around’. Rahane was batting at the time, and there chants such as ‘Rahane is a s s****r, all Indians are s*****s’. This is the first time I was really seeing something like this. I have never faced something like this and to me it was appaling.
“I turned around and it was a group of 5-6 guys, aged 19-23, young guys who were having a good time and thought that this was really funny. I tried to have some eye contact to let them know that it was not cool, but you know, they just continued. ‘All Indians are s*****s’ they continued to say,” mentioned Krishna Kumar on Sports activities As we speak.
