”This needs to stop”, Darren Sammy speaks up on Sarfaraz Ahmed’s racial slur

The revival of BLM has initiated many others conversations.

Former West Indies captain Darren Sammy has opened up on Pakistan’s former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed’s racist slur against South Africa’s Andile Phehlukwayo, during a One-day International (ODI) match — back in 2019.

Sarfaraz was banned for a couple of matches and later issued an apology for the discriminatory word he used for Phehlukwayo.

Darren, while highlighting the incident, said that this needs to be stopped.

In a recent interview, Sammy shared, “I heard Sarfaraz used a racial slur, but I did not really dive into the story. I saw it pop up, but I did not get into the details. I wasn’t aware it was that word he used back then. But I know he issued an apology right after. That in itself is why I am having this conversation, whether you didn’t mean it in any way like that we still need to stop,”

“That is why I want to have a conversation with the people who used it in the dressing room. Let’s stop it for us to avoid situations like what Sarfaraz did, thinking it was innocent. If it could mean anything that could be taken as degrading or insulting, you don’t use it. Full stop,” he added.

The former West Indies captain Sammy has also asked all the cricket boards to stand together and eradicate this social evil to the core.

  • He only apologized after getting caught on the video. That was extremely insulting the way he had referred to the South African player. He had said “Abay Kaalay tery mean Kahan bathee hay. Kya pathway kee aya hay toh us say “.  In our culture insult is only complete when it involves racial slur and abuse on a mother. Sarfraz did both in one sentence successfully.
