Why Sarfraz Ahmed's Apology Seems As Earnest As Noodle Samosa

Maybe Sarfraz Ahmed has not realised the magnitude of his comments after all

Pakistan skipper, Sarfraz Ahmed, has just released apology statement for making racist against South African cricketer, Andile Phehlukwayo, and we are are NOT buying it.

Just in case you don’t know what Sarfraz said. Here are our his comments on Andile Phehlukwayo in Urdu, “Abey kaale, teri ammi aaj kahaan baitheen hain? Kya parwa ke aaye hai aaj?”. This translates to “Hey black guy, where’s your mother sitting today? What [prayer] have you got her to say for you today?”.

Here’s Sarfraz’s sorry attempt at an apology,

He even got the numbering wrong

It was quite obvious that Sarfraz did not expect this kind of a backlash. Even in the post-match press conference, he referred to Phehlukwayo as the ‘one with a difficult name’

In the first tweet, Sarfraz refers to his casual racism as words ‘which was unfortunately caught by the stump mic’. In the same tweet he writes, ‘My words were not directed towards anyone in particular’ which isn’t true. His words were directed towards Phehlukwayo who survived a review and a dropped catch.
