After the incident, former Sunrisers Hyderabad all-rounder Darren Sammy made a shocking revealtion. He told that he along with Thisara Perera too faced racisim while playing the Indian Premier League (IPL).
“Oh so that’s what that meant when they called me and Thisara Perera Kalu in India when we played for Sunrisers. I just thought they were calling me strong black man… I’m more piss now,” he wrote in an Instagram story.
Sammy had earlier urged the ICC and the entire cricket fraternity to raise their voice against Racism across the world,or else be ready to be considered “a part of the problem.”
Sammy pointed out that Racism is not limited to America, but blacks all over the world have to deal with this social evil on a regular basis.
Star west Indian player and Sammy’s former team mate Chris Gayle also expressed solidarity with the campaign , alleging that he was subjected to “Racial remarks many times in his career, racism is not limited to football it’s in cricket too.”
