Racism in cricket: Azeem Rafiq calls for a 'clear-out' at Yorkshire CCC

Sky, 17 Nov 2021
Azeem Rafiq says there needs to be a root and branch clear-out at Yorkshire County Cricket Club after he accused the organisation of failing to crack down on racist behaviour in the team.

But he told Sky News that he was surprised by the reaction to his testimony - and that most people of colour wouldn't find his allegations of racism surprising.

The former cricketer told a committee of MPs that he had been subjected to repeated racist behaviour and the club had done nothing to stop it - a lack of action that effectively ended his career.
