Ex-player Azeem Rafiq tells UK lawmakers racism is institutional in cricket


Former Yorkshire player Azeem Rafiq told British lawmakers on Tuesday that racism in cricket is institutional as he gave evidence to a committee investigating the issue.

Rafiq first alleged racial harassment and bullying against the English county and accused them of institutional racism in September last year, with the club launching an investigation soon afterwards.

He answered "yes" when asked whether racism was institutional in cricket, saying governing bodies had to take responsibility.
