Pakistan's Latif reported for racial abuse

February 12, 2003 17:06 IST

Pakistan wicketkeeper Rashid Latif has been reported by the Australian board to the International Cricket Council for what is believed to be a racial slur, an ICC spokesman said on Wednesday.

Latif played in Tuesday's World Cup Group A defeat by the world champions, top-scoring for his side with an innings of 33 during which he was reportedly involved in an altercation with Australia wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist.

The matter will be reviewed by ICC match referee Clive Lloyd at a hearing in Johannesburg starting at 1100 GMT.

The 34-year-old Latif has played 34 test matches and 144 one-day internationals since making his Pakistan debut in 1992.

Australia batsman Darren Lehmann was suspended for five matches last month after making a racist comment in his team's dressing room during a match against Sri Lanka.

The final game of Lehmann's ban was Tuesday's opening World Cup victory over Pakistan, and he will be available for Saturday's match against India.
