The Indian team management has lodged a complaint about two of their players - Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj - having faced racial abuse from the crowd at the Sydney Cricket Ground during the third Test.
It is learned that the abuse had occurred over the second and third day of the Test match.
It all came to a head at the end of the third day's play when a bunch of senior players led by captain Ajinkya Rahane, R Ashwin spoke to the two umpires Paul Reiffel and Paul Wilson and brought to their notice that two of their players had been subjected to the abuse.
There was a discussion between the umpires, security officials and the said Indian players for close to five minutes after the close of play. The Indian team then hung around in the dressing room for a while when the India security official had a quick chat with the security officers at the ground, and also the ICC security official present at the venue.
Cricbuzz learns that the issue rests with ICC until further notice.
