Imran Tahir racially abused at the Wanderers - CSA

Imran Tahir racially abused at the Wanderers - CSA

Acting on Tahir's complaint, the security promptly identified the offender and proceeded to eject him from the stadium.

There was an incident of racial abuse during the fourth ODI between India and South Africa in Johannesburg on Saturday. "There were no exchanges and there were no children involved in the incident as it has been told on the social media", said Moosajee during the press conference on Monday. The man found guilty of dishing out the abuse was subsequently evicted from the stadium by security personnel. During ICC World Cup 2015, the fans had a run in with Tahir.

Cricket South Africa (CSA) is now investigating the incident and is aware of the circulation of video footage featuring Tahir on social media and Whatsapp groups. It is reported that Tahir made no physical contact with the culprit.

While the CSA did not disclose the identity or nationality of the fan accused of racist behaviour, South Africa team manager Mohammed Moosajee later said that the fan was in fact from India. The security personel at the stadium is then seen trying to calm down the angry spectators.

Moosajee also stated that Tahir is in no danger of being sanctioned by Cricket South Africa as the board has accepted his version of the incident.

"We just want to get an idea from the stadium security perspective". "From his side, he hasn't done anything untoward".

Cricket South Africa and the Wanderers security personnel are investigating an alleged verbal and racial abuse on leg spinner Imran Tahir that occurred during the Proteas' five-wicket ODI victory against India on Saturday. Virat Kohli-led India hold a 3-1 advantage with the fifth ODI set to be played in Port Elizabeth tomorrow (February 13).
