Chris Gayle had revealed that he had faced racist remarks many times in his career and now Darren Sammy has also made shocking revelations about it.

The former West Indian said that in the Indian Premier League (IPL) he and Sri Lanka’s Thisara Perera were called ‘Kalu’.

Sun Riser Hyderabad and Royals Challengers Bangalore have been represented in the Semi-Indian Premier League and during this time they were called ‘Kalu’ by the people, which made them feel very bad.
