CA slams 'bigotry' against Ahmed
Cricket Australia boss James Sutherland has condemned ''bigoted'' comments about Australian spinner Fawad Ahmed, after former rugby union international David Campese said he should ''go home'' if he didn't want to wear a beer sponsor's logo on his playing shirt.
Campese was commenting on a story that appeared in Sydney's Daily Telegraph, in which former Test batsman Doug Walters was quoted as saying: ''I think if he doesn't want to wear the team gear, he should not be part of the team. Maybe if he doesn't want to be paid that's OK''. Campese tweeted: ''Doug Walters tells Pakistan-born Fawad Ahmed: if you don't like the VB uniform, don't play for Australia Well said doug. Tell him to go home.''
