Leon set new standards after Siraj complained about racial remarks

Brisbane: Australia's top off-spinner Nathan Lyon on Wednesday said that Indian fast bowler Mohammad Siraj has set new standards by condemning the poor behavior of the spectators. He also said that the game of cricket is for everyone and there is no place for racism in it.

Siraj and Jaspreet Bumrah faced racial comments from spectators on the fourth and fifth days at the Sydney Cricket Ground. After this the Indian team lodged a complaint with the ICC. Leon said in a virtual press conference, 'There is no scope for racial splashing in the game. People think they are joking but it can affect people differently. The game of cricket is for everyone and there is no place for racism in it. 

He said, 'If you feel that there is a need to complain to the match officials then it should be done. Nowadays there are so many security personnel on the ground that racial commentators can be thrown out immediately. This will also lead to complaints from match officials. The audience at the square leg boundary called Siraj as 'Monkey' and 'Brown Dog'. Security personnel drove the spectators out of the ground.

Leon said, "This will set the trend for the incident. It depends on the player whether he wants to complain or not. I hope that from now on, people will come out of it and only watch cricket and the players will not have to worry about racial abuse.
