This term is derogatory and the Oxford Dictionary has classified it as an 'offensive term'. 

The same was pointed out by an Australian journalist Danny Saeed. He has a Pakistani heritage. He also posted a clarification from the Cricket Australia (CA). "This was obviously regrettable, and the error we corrected manually as soon as it came to light," CA clarified.
