South Africa spinner Imran Tahir has alleged that he was racially abused by an Indian fan during the fourth One-day International (ODI) against India at the New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. Tahir also requested Cricket South Africa (CSA) to launch an investigation in the matter. According to CSA, Tahir, who did not feature in the rain-curtailed match that India lost by five wickets, was verbally and racially abused by an unknown man in the crowd while he was carrying out his duties as 12th man.

“My understanding from Imran’s perspective is that he was racially and verbally abused by a certain gentleman throughout the match. He reported to stadium security stationed in front of the dressing room and two of the security personnel accompanied him to identify the perpetrator,” said South Africa team manager Mohammed Moosajee.
