They were taken away for questioning. So far, witnesses interviewed by Cricket Australia have disputed the Indian bowler's account of being racially vilified by a group of Australian spectators at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The game's worldwide governing body said six men were ejected.

"I think it's bitterly disappointing". "Under the ICC Anti-Discrimination policy, Cricket Australia will now be required to investigate the issue and provide a report to the ICC on the incident and any action taken to ensure the issue has been dealt with appropriately", ICC said in a statement.

India were in a tricky spot after losing captain Ajinkya Rahane in the second over of the day before the promoted Pant smashed 97 off 118 giving hopes of an unlikely win as the tourists chased a massive 407 to win.

Another incident of verbal abuse directed at Mohammed Siraj has resulted in play stopping for more than eight minutes on day four of the SCG Test. I have just read books and watched Adam Goodes's documentary on racism. "Match and stadium officials were alert on the fourth day and as such play was halted and six people were evicted following another incident just before tea", the statement added.

Not one for mincing words, India star R. Ashwin decried the unsavoury incidents at the Sydney Cricket Ground as nasty. "They were constantly abusing Bumrah too", a BCCI source told the Press Trust of India. There is a time where they have gone one step ahead and used racial abuse.

Ashwin confirmed India had made an official complaint on Saturday, prompting the more immediate reaction on Sunday.

"I'm sure once all the details are out with what happened in Sydney, I'm sure Tim Paine and the guys will come out and say they're against it for sure". "It is definitely not acceptable".

Veteran Ravichandran Ashwin wants the matter to be dealt with using an "iron fist" and said the abuse of India players had been an issue his whole career in Sydney.

'We thank the Indian team for their vigilance in reporting today's incident which we are now investigating.

One of just six Indigenous players to represent Australia at global level, he said it wasn't "as in-your-face as you might see elsewhere around the world" but that "it's definitely there".

"It is most regrettable that an otherwise excelent Test match contested in tremendous spirit by the two friendly rivals has been tarnished by the actions of a small number of spectators over the past two days".

NSW Venues Chief Executive Kerrie Mather said CCTV footage was being examined to identify the miscreants. "I think one or two times, even players have reacted and gotten into trouble in the past and that's not because of the player, it is actually because of the way the crowd has been speaking. I hate as a coach".
