PCB responds over Skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed racial comments against South African player

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Cricket Board has expressed regret over the remark made by captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and picked up by the stump mic during the second ODI against South Africa in Durban.

In its statement, PCB made it clear that it neither endorse nor support any comments that have the potential to cause offence.

PCB firmly reiterated their zero-tolerance approach towards racist comments made; in whatever context.

The PCB endeavor to improve their player's education programmes to ensure such incidents do not happen again.

The statement said Sarfaraz is one of the most respected cricketers in the world. However, captaining Pakistan is a massive honour and any hurtful remarks by any cricketer, let alone the captain would not be acceptable to the PCB.

The PCB said it is confident that this incident will not affect the series, which has been played in great spirit with some excellent performances from both side.
