Web Desk: Pakistani captain Sarfraz Ahmed on Friday met South African all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo to extend an apology following his on-the-field comments which seemed to be a racial slur.
Skipper posted a photo of him shaking hands with South African cricketer at an undisclosed venue in presence of team managers, Talat Ali from Pakistan and Mohammad Moosajee from South Africa.
“This morning I apologised to Andile Phehlukwayo and he was gracious enough to accept my apology and I hope the people of South Africa also accept my apology.”

However, responding to Sarfraz Ahmed, South Africa captain Faf du Plessis said that his team has forgiven Sarfraz Ahmed for his racially charged on-field.
The incident occurred in the 37th over of South Africas run-chase during the second ODI at Kingsmead in Durban when Phehlukwayo got an inside edge off a Shaheen Shah Afridi delivery that narrowly missed the stumps.
