Former Yorkshire player Azeem Rafiq told a Digital, Culture, Media and Sport select committee on 16 November 2021 that English cricket is “institutionally” racist.
Rafiq told the DCMS select committee how racist language was “constantly” used at Yorkshire County Cricket Club.
Rafiq first spoke out last year, claiming “institutional racism” at Yorkshire left him close to taking his own life. 7 of the 43 allegations were upheld by an independent panel last month and the report found he had been a victim of “racial harassment and bullying” at the club. However, Yorkshire said they will not take disciplinary action against any player, employee or executive.
Yorkshire have been suspended from hosting international matches by the ECB and Nike, plus several of Yorkshire’s sponsors, including Yorkshire Tea, Tetley’s beer has either ended partnerships or said they would not continue deals.
