Round up: Sarfraz 'forgiven but not forgotten', Pandya back in contention, Kohli sweeps ICC awards

Forgiven but not forgotten

Pakistan skipper, Sarfraz Ahmed, recently made a ‘racist’ comment towards South Africa all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo that landed him into trouble.

Sarfraz immediately apologized and owned up for his on-field inappropriate comment, claiming his words “were not directed towards anyone in particular and he certainly had no intention of upsetting anyone”.

In response, South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis responded with forgiveness but hasn’t let go off the incident.

"We're not taking it lightly, but that fact that there was an immediate apology shows there is regret. We can forgive but that doesn't mean we brush it under the table,” said Faf du Plessis.

Is it too late now to say sorry?
