2011 Cricket World Cup Pakistan vs Canada Player Balaji Rao Controversy Umar Gul Ahmad Shehzad Racist Remarks

Pakistan vs Canada: There have not been many matches between Pakistan and Canada in cricket. Their first clash was in a T20 match in 2008, in which the Pakistani team won by 35 runs. About 13 years ago, the 2011 ODI Cricket World Cup was jointly hosted by India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. In that World Cup, Pakistan and Canada were placed in Group A. When they clashed in the World Cup, a player of Indian origin was playing in Canada. At that time, allegations were made that Pakistani players crossed the limits and made racial remarks on the Canadian player. The seriousness of the matter was such that both sides resorted to abusive language.

On 11 March 2011, a match between Pakistan and Canada was played in Colombo. In that encounter, Pakistan was all out for 184 runs while batting first. While chasing the target, the Canadian team faltered. A batsman named Balaji Rao came to the crease at the 10th position. Balaji was batting, but Umar Gul and Ahmed Shahzad were sledging him. This sledging became a matter of fight when the players of the Pak team crossed the limits, due to which Balaji started abusing.

Canadian player abused

Let us tell you that Balaji Rao is originally an Indian. Balaji got so angry due to the words of Umar Gul and Ahmed Shahzad that he started swinging his bat very hard in Umar Gul's over, but he was missing most of the balls. Gul and Balaji got angry and clashed with each other and words were also exchanged between them. Ahmed Shahzad even made a racial comment. In response to this, Balaji started abusing Shahzad in Punjabi language. Shahzad is also known for his fighting style, so he also clashed with Balaji. The matter was getting so serious that the umpires had to intervene to resolve the matter. The umpire also warned Shahzad and then Younis Khan came forward to defend him.
