Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed has landed himself in soup after being caught making racist comments on South Africa’s Andile Phehlukwayo during the second ODI match in Durban on Tuesday.

Visibly frustrated with the partnership between Phehlukwayo and Rassie van der Dussen, Sarfraz perhaps decided to act funny, saying: “Abey kale, teri ammi kahan baithi hui hain aaj? Kya parhwa ke aaya hai aaj? (Hey black man, where is your mother seated? What have you asked her to pray for you today?)

Mike Haysman, on air, sought help from co-commentator Ramiz Raza, who said: “Difficult really to translate that. It’s a big long sentence.”

But fans were quick to show their anger on social media.

“This isn’t funny. It’s pathetic and racist,” one comment read.

“Need to take away captaincy wright (sic) away he is shame to be called Leader of a team,” another added.”]

Chasing Pakistan’s target of 204 runs, South Africa were struggling at 80-5 before Phehlukwayo (69 not out) and Dussen (80 not out) helped the hosts win with eight overs to spare.
