Racism is unacceptable in any sport: Gambhir

Racism is unacceptable in any sport: Gambhir

New Delhi, Jan 12 (UNI) After the racial slurs were hurled at Indian players during the the Sydney Test, former opener Gautam Gambhir on Tuesday said that racism is unacceptable in any sport and there should be stricter laws to curb it.
During the 3rd Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Indian bowlers Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah alleged racial abuse from the Australian crowd on the third and fourth days of the match and six fans were thrown out of the stadium after the Indian team complained to the umpires.
'Very unfortunate and that is something which is absolutely not acceptable. Not only cricket, but in any sport and that’s where I think there is need for us to have stricter laws. When it happens to a certain player, it is only that individual who feels about it,' Gambhir said on Star Sports show 'Cricket Connected'.
