During the match between India and Australia, the spectators who were supporting the Australian team passed the racist comments. Reacting to this, Kohli shared his views on Twitter and condemned it. “Racial abuse is absolutely unacceptable. Having gone through many incidents of really pathetic things said on the boundary Iines, this is the absolute peak of rowdy behaviour. It’s sad to see this happen on the field,” Kohli wrote. “The incident needs to be looked at with absolute urgency and seriousness and strict action against the offenders should set things straight for once,” Kohli further wrote. The incident took place on the fourth day of the match and Mohammad Siraj complained that to the field umpires and senior player Ravichandran Aswin asked to curb such violations with an iron fist. NSW Police and Cricket Australia launched parallel investigations and the section of the crowd was removed from the stands.
