MELBOURNE, Jan.27 (Reuters) – The Australian Cricket Council eliminated six onlookers at the racist assault on Indian pitcher Mohammed Siraj in the third test at Sydney Cricket Ground, Australian media reported on Wednesday.
Cricket Australia (California) opened an investigation with New South Wales Police after Siraj complained that he heard racist slurs while standing near the border rope. male supporters were removed from their seats and questioned by stadium police.
CA’s report on his investigation said he believed the players had been racially abused, but investigators were unable to identify the culprits, the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper said, citing anonymous sources.
CA has submitted its report to the world governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC).
CA was not able to provide immediate comment on her report when contacted by Reuters.
The racism allegations eclipsed the last two matches of the test series, which India won 2-1.
