The former India player said he faced racist comments from his teammates throughout his life.

It should be noted that the term “school” is a regional slur referring to people from or living in South India, particularly Tamil Nadu.

Racism has always been a problem in sports. Cursing and animal noises on the field have become commonplace in many sports. The English Premier League has taken various measures to address this problem, including requiring players to kneel before every match. But there is danger in any form of racism, even if it comes from a particular country. Former India coach S Sreesanth recently revealed that he had been called 'Madrasi' all his life.

It should be noted that the term “school” is a regional slur referring to people from or living in South India, particularly Tamil Nadu. In an ODI match in Nagpur against Sri Lanka in October 2005, Sreesanth made his debut for India. The pacer has represented India in all three formats, collecting 169 wickets.
