The second ODI match between South Africa and Pakistan at Durban on Tuesday was overshadowed by obscene and racist comments made by visiting captain Sarfraz Ahmed against Andile Phehlukwayo.

In the 37th over of South African innings, Sarfraz was caught on the stump mics saying, in Urdu: "Abey kaale, teri ammi aaj kahaan baitheen hain? Kya parwa ke aaye hai aaj?", which can be loosely translated as "Black guy, where's your mother sitting today? What have you got her to say for you today?"

The sledge got the commentators talking with Mike Haysman asking Ramiz Raja for translation. Former Pakistan batsman tried to avoid, saying "Difficult really to translate that. It's a big long sentence."

But fans were not happy. Here are some reactions:


South Africa beat Pakistan by five wickets to level the five-match series thanks to unbeaten half-centuries from Rassie van der Dussen and Phehlukwayo.

Tailender Hasan Ali's quickfire 59 dragged Pakistan to a total of 203 all out batting first, but despite a top-order collapse, the Proteas made the series 1-1.
