Yorkshire Cricket Club: Under the influence of the racism scandal, the cricket director of the first team coach and staff leaves

Read Time:1 Minute, 49 Second


Last month, former cricket player Azeem Rafiq spoke with British lawmakers and he called on YCCC to take disciplinary action after an investigation found that he was racially harassed and bullied.

Throughout the hearing, Rafik shared his experience in Yorkshire and cried more than once.

Rafik said: “From the beginning, there were a lot of the word’you are sitting near the toilet.’ The word’P***’ is often used, and no one has ever deleted it.”

“All I want to do is play cricket. At the end of my first spell, I always knew there was a problem. I started taking medication to treat my mental health. It was really tough.”

When asked to compare his treatment in Yorkshire with his daily life, Rafik said: “As far as I know, my daily life has always been cricket. It is difficult to compare. Cricket is worse than society. “

The club suspended Gale last month, “waiting for a disciplinary hearing based on historical tweets,” while Moxon has been absent from work since early November “due to stress-related illness.”

“The Yorkshire Cricket Club needs to make major changes and we are committed to taking all necessary measures to regain trust,” said Kamlesh Patel, the new Yorkshire chairman and director.

“The decision announced today is difficult to make, but it is in the club’s best interest.

Andrew Gale looks on during the Royal London One Day Cup match between Lancashire and Yorkshire at Old Trafford on June 5, 2018.

“If we don’t make major changes to the way we operate, we will not be able to move on from the past and become a culture of progress and tolerance.

“We are determined to learn from the mistakes of the past and become a club that people can trust,” Patel added.

The club stated that a new cricket director will be appointed in the next few days and a new coaching team will also be recruited.

Julian Knight, chairman of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sports Committee, said: “We welcome the announcement of the departure of all of its coaching staff by the Yorkshire Cricket Club.”

“Azeem Rafiq’s experience at YCCC is not low,” Knight added.
