Former West Indies captain Darren Sammy has been accused of racially abusing Sunrisers Hyderabad during the 2013 Indian Premier League season. Sammy complained that he and the Sri Lankan star Thisara Perera were black because they were called ‘legs’. . At that time, it was thought that they were called strong. In the context of the George Floyd incident in the US, Sammy’s comments make it clear that this is not the case.However, the then co-stars Parthiv Patel, Irfan Pathan and Andhra Cricket Association Director Tur Y Venugopal Rao have come out against Sammy’s allegations. Parthiv said he had never heard anyone use such racist references. Venugopal Rao also said that no such incident has been noticed.Irfan Pathan said he was unaware of such incidents in the IPL. Irfan Waikom said that if anything had happened it would have been discussed prominently. Irfan, meanwhile, said there have been similar incidents in domestic cricket. Some players from South India have been ridiculed when they come to play in North India. Irfan said he did not want to disclose who made the remark.
