Condemning the discriminatory behaviour Cricket Australia’s Head of Integrity and Security, Carroll said, “Cricket Australia condemns in the strongest terms possible all discriminatory behaviour. If you engage in racist abuse, you are not welcome in Australian cricket,” in an official statement.

“CA is awaiting the outcome of the International Cricket Council’s investigation into the matter reported at the SCG on Saturday. Once those responsible are identified, CA will take the strongest measures possible under our Anti-Harassment Code, including lengthy bans, further sanctions and referral to NSW Police. As series hosts, we unreservedly apologies to our friends in the Indian cricket team and assure them we will prosecute the matter to its fullest extent,” he further added.

Meanwhile, revealing further about it spinner Ashwin said, “In 2011, I didn’t know what racism is and how you are made to feel small. And people also join the laugh.”
