Former West Indian captain Chris Gayle has come out in support of Darren Sammy. But Indian cricketers remain mute on the issue of racism within the ranks. Ishant Sharma's old photos, where he has used a racial slur for Sammy, surfaced on social media, but he hasn't made a statement. Neither has the God of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar.
Darren Sammy caused a stir in India, after posting an Instagram video where he accused teammates from the Sunrisers Hyderabad of directing racist slurs towards him. “You know who you are,” Sammy said. “Now, I realise it was degrading, I will be texting you guys and I will ask you as to when you called me with that name, did you all mean it in any bad way or form?” he asked.
