Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ehsan Mani on Friday said that in the punishment given to captain Sarfaraz Ahmed by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for allegedly racist remarks made against South African cricketer Andile Phehlukwayo, bureaucracy seems to have won against common sense.
“As far as we were concerned, an apology had been tendered and accepted and the only question was whether Sarfaraz deserved any punishment,” Mani said, while speaking to ESPNcricinfo.
“I had already said we should pull Sarfaraz out for 2-3 games. I felt very strongly that this has to be a strong message for everyone.”
In the second ODI played between Pakistan and South Africa, Sarfraz was heard making controversial remarks directed at Phehlukwayo.
