Whether in Australia or elsewhere, racial abuse has no place in sport. This comes after Test cricketer were abused.
This has compelled Team India to lodge an official complaint with ICC. There are no excuses here because Abusive spectators should be held accountable and served life bans from entering cricket stadiums. Understandably, passions can run high during a cricket game and spectators can get caught up in the heat of the moment. However, the abusing players is totally unacceptable and cannot be tolerated.
“Players should be able to also to focus on their own business (sport) rather than bring outside maters into the limelight. If spectators are punished then a day will come players will have to play without spectators. Cricketers will have to bear the loss of spectators and its financial implications. Those who are intolerant to spectators should learn how to do so and not bring any hazard to the board and sports.”
