Indian fans livid as Australian cricketer racially abuses debutant Mayank Agarwal

The Australian Cricket team rocked by a humiliating Sandpaper-gate scandal recently has not performed well against the visiting Indian team as expected by their fans and Australian cricket management.

Kerry O’Keeffe, an undistinguished former cricketer from Australia and a radio show host has caused a massive controversy after his commentary took a racist turn to abuse Indian first class teams and also test cricketer Mayank Agarwal, who incidentally made his debut today at Boxing day test match at Melbourne.

Reportedly, former Australian leg-spinner O’Keeffe while commentating for Fox Sports tried to undermine the debutant Mayank Agarwal’s brilliant knock of 76 against the Australia cricket team at the MCG. O’Keeffe perhaps disturbed by the dominance of the Indian team against Australia went on the question the quality of Indian first-class cricket system by racially abusing players who play in domestic cricket.

O’Keefe said that players like Mayank Agarwal may have scored his 300 against “some canteen staff or waiters” referring to the spectacular runs he scored in India’s first-class cricket tournament, Ranji Trophy, which included a brilliant triple century against Maharashtra in 2017.

Social media users were shocked to the racist comments made by an underachieved cricketer against a batsman who has been performing brilliantly in the last couple of years. Some users took a strong offence against O’Keeffe for racially abusing Indians as “Canteen people” and “waiters”.

Another cricket fan said that the domestic tournaments which O’Keefe racially abused have produced great players like Virat Kohli, who has been hammering the Australian cricket team every time he tours Australia.

Melinda Ferrel, a sports journalist also dismissed the statements made by O’Keefe saying that it is not proper to ridicule first-class cricket tournaments.

The Australian Cricket team rocked by a humiliating Sandpaper-gate scandal recently has not performed well against the visiting Indian team as expected by their fans and Australian cricket management. Some of the Australians perhaps frustrated by the brilliant performance of the Indian cricket team has resorted to racial abuses to undermine their achievement.
