Yorkshire County Cricket Club apologises to Azeem Rafiq, racism allegations, statement

Yorkshire County Cricket Club apologised to former off-spinner Azeem Rafiq on Thursday after a lengthy investigation into allegations of racism.

The club instead found he was “the victim of inappropriate behaviour”, not racism, which has led to backlash from Rafiq who said he’s “frustrated” and “angry” at the response.

Rafiq filed a legal complaint in December 2020 claiming to have suffered direct discrimination and harassment on the grounds of race.

The 30-year-old told foxsports.com.au earlier this year that the severe mental health issues he suffered as a result of his treatment by the club included depression and contemplating suicide.
