In what comes as a shocking development, the Indian team-management has lodged an official complaint, alleging that the Indian fast bowling duo of Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah was subjected to racial slurs by a section of the crowd at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

According to a report in Daily Mail, it is understood that both Bumrah and Siraj were racially abused by the members of the crowd at the SCG for the past couple of days.

Senior Indian players and captain Ajinkya Rahane had a word with the match-officials and security personnel at the end of the play, amid claims that a member in the Randwick stand abused Siraj when he was fielding at fine-leg.

In a separate incident, the Indian staff walked around behind where Jasprit Bumrah was standing and spoke to him. Bumrah spoke to security officials before leaving as did Mohammed Siraj.

There were dramatic scenes around the Indian dressing room at stumps on day 03 with ICC and security officials locked in a long discussion with the members of the Indian team management.
