Pakistan Cricket Team’s skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed has landed himself in trouble after passing an offensive remark on the field.

The captain was caught on the broadcast stump microphone saying “Abey kaale, teri ammi aaj kahaan baitheen hain? Kya parwa ke aaye hai aaj?”

HEY BLACK GUY, WHERE’S YOUR MOTHER SITTING TODAY? WHAT [PRAYER] HAVE YOU GOT HER TO SAY FOR YOU TODAY?

This comment was passed to South Africa’s left-handed batsman Andile Phehlukwayo. When commentator Mike Haysman asked former cricketer and commentator Ramiz Raja what Sarfaraz had said, he replied:

DIFFICULT REALLY TO TRANSLATE THAT, IT’S A BIG LONG SENTENCE.

While Ramiz Raja might have been able to save the Pakistani skipper at that point in time, however, the comment was soon all over social media with cricket fanatics calling Sarfraz out, telling him to apologize.

Former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar also ended up uploading a video on his official account, calling out Sarfaraz and telling him to apologize for the remarks he had passed on field. However, Akhtar deleted the video shortly after.

Thus, the social media reacted:
