Azeem Rafiq: What’s next for cricket following racism allegations?

As the world of cricket remains in shock from the racism allegations made by former Yorkshire cricketer Azeem Rafiq this week, there are signs that action is being taken. A game-wide meeting was held on Friday to discuss how to stamp out racism in the sport. Azeem’s emotional speech to the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport select committee about the racism he allegedly experienced at Yorkshire Cricket Club, has led to a number of resignations in the sport. Steve Goodsell from the charity Show Racism The Red Card discusses the issue, what needs to change to overcome racism in cricket, and the potential for the introduction of an independent regulator.
