Allegations of abuse surface at SCG Test

The Sydney Test has been marred by allegations of abuse towards Indian players by the SCG crowd.

In a dramatic end to day three, senior Indian players approached the umpires as they walked from the field.

Indian quicks Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah are believed to be the two players caught up in the incident.

Teammates could be seen offering their support to Siraj, as they spoke to security and match officials while pointing towards the fine leg fence where he had been fielding.

India’s coach Ravi Shastri, captain Ajinkya Rahane and vice-captain Rohit Sharma then remained out the front of their dressing room for around 20 minutes after play.

The trio spoke to several ground and ICC officials, including match referee David Boon, before Siraj and Bumrah also came out and spoke to security staff.

Security staff were also seen talking to members of the crowd where Siraj was fielding after play, but there is no suggestion the matters are linked.

The SCG capacity has been reduced to around 10,000 people per day, with minimal people sitting in each area.

The ICC said it was awaiting the match official’s report before commenting on the matter.
