ENG v IND 2018: WATCH- Graeme Swann makes a racist comment on Yuzvendra Chahal

Fans are furious over the incident happened in second ODI between India and England.

Former England off-spinner Graeme Swann may find himself in trouble over his words on-air during India and England second ODI. He called Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal a dog when he was struggling to complete a run.

The incident occurred during Indian innings' 49th over when they were chasing 322 and the last pair was in the middle. Kuldeep Yadav and Chahal, like true tailenders, were adding few runs with funny mix-ups in running between the wickets. 

While everyone saw the funny side, including Swann, his comment during commentary upset the Indian fans. Fans called it a racist comment.

Chahal had almost got himself out but quickly turned back and also put in a dive to reach the crease. On seeing this, Swann said, "Chahal like a true tail-ender had no idea what’s going on with the bat in his hand, spinning around like a dog chasing a frisbee."

Former England skipper Nasser Hussain had once again called the Indian fielders "donkeys" during the one-off Twenty20 match between India and England back in 2011.

Sitting in the commentary box, Hussain made the controversial comment after Parthiv Patel misjudged a Kevin Pietersen catch off Munaf Patel's bowling.
