Southampton: Racism remains an active problem in cricket despite strict measures taken by the authorities. Fans returned to the stadium for the final of the ICC World Test Championship, along with those promoting racial abuse. According to reports, on the fifth day of the World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand in Southampton, Ross Taylor was reportedly thrown out of the stadium by two fans.
Stuff.ko.NZ’s report revealed that the complaint was received by the ICC via Twitter, which was watching the match on TV. Dominic Da Souza tweeted, ‘ICC Media, anyone watching the behavior of the spectators on the field? This patriot is making indecent remarks on the New Zealand team. A lot of inappropriate things happened throughout the day. This includes racist remarks on Ross Taylor.’
Security officials immediately tracked down those who committed abusive behavior. The security personnel immediately escorted the two convicts out of the field. ICC GM Claire Furlong confirmed this by giving this information to Dominic. Furlong tweeted, ‘Just want to tell you. Two people were caught and have been thrown out of the stadium. Thank you for taking the time to contact Azarrodkimber. Me and all of us are against this kind of behaviour.
The ICC spokesperson also confirmed the matter and said that whoever commits racial abuse will be thrown out of the stadium. The spokesperson said, ‘We have received information about indecency on New Zealand players. Our security team managed to find the culprits and threw them out of the field. However, Ross Taylor (11) could not spend much time at the crease and returned to the pavilion after Shami was caught by Shubman Gill. On the fifth day, India scored 64/2 in their second innings and took a 32-run lead over New Zealand.
