Former Indian Cricketer Irfan Pathan recently opened up about the racist taunts south Indian cricketers are subjected to at times. During an interview with ANI, Pathan claimed that in some first-class matches, there were people in the crowd who try to create nuisance just to look funny.

South Indian Cricket Players face Racist Taunts, says former Cricketer

"I have seen that in domestic cricket, some of our brothers who come from South India, when they come to play domestic matches in North or West India, they do sometimes get taunts, generally in first-class matches, you see a smaller crowd and when there is a smaller crowd, there is always one guy who is trying to be a joker, who is trying to be famous, he will just want to direct jibes at players and as a result, he crosses the line," Pathan told ANI.

"I believe in the society we need to educate everyone; elders and family should teach what is right to say and what's not, we need to value faith and beliefs of others, we can do better by education kids of our generation," he added.

On Saturday, former West Indies T20 World Cup- winning skipper Darren Sammy revealed that he recently learnt the meaning of the word ‘Kalu’, a word by fellow players toc all him during his IPL Stint with SunRisers Hyderabad. 

“I just learnt what that word ‘kalu’ meant when I played for Sunrisers in the IPL. They called me and Perera by that name. I thought it meant strong Stallion. My previous post tells me something different and I am angry," Sammy had written in an Instagram story.

However, when Pathan was questioned about Sammy’s claim, he said "If there was something like that, it would have come under our notice, there was no team discussion as such during 2014 IPL, we are not aware of that.”
