The board of the Scottish cricket federation resigned en masse on Sunday following accusations of institutional racism in a damning independent review which is due to be published on Monday.
“The Board of Cricket Scotland has resigned. We will work in partnership with @sportscotland with immediate effect to ensure appropriate governance, leadership & support is in place for sport in the days ahead,” Cricket Scotland tweeted on Sunday.
The review was commissioned last year by Sport Scotland, the national funding body, after Scotland’s all-time leading wicket-taker Majid Haq told Sky Sports News that Cricket Scotland was “institutionally racist”.
Haq picked up 60 wickets for Scotland in 54 ODI matches and 28 wickets in 21 T20Is, but was exiled after he tweeted “always tougher when you’re in the minority! #colour #race” after not being selected for a 2015 match.
