South African spinner Imran Tahir has alleged that he was racially abused by an Indian fan during the fourth ODI against Virat Kohli's men, prompting the CSA to launch an investigation. South Africa team manager Mohammed Moosajee said Tahir was abused while he was carrying out his duties as 12th man during the fourth ODI at Johannesburg.

"My understanding from Imran's perspective is that he was racially and verbally abused by a certain gentleman throughout the match. He reported to stadium security and two of the security personnel accompanied him to identify the perpetrator," said Moosajee. "According to what Imran said, it was an Indian fan," Moosajee added.
