ICC condemns racist abuse

The International Cricket Council is determined to stamp out racist abuse at Test grounds after problems during the Australia v South Africa game in Perth.

South Africa complained about abuse directed towards some of their players during the third day’s play.

ICC chief executive Malcolm Speed said such behaviour would not be tolerated.

“The fact that this is an isolated incident by a small number of people in one country does not lessen the game’s resolve to address the issue,” he said.
