- Former Yorkshire player says ECB tried to discredit him
- Lord Patel, Yorkshire chairman, also critical of ECB
Azeem Rafiq has accused the ECB of actively attempting to discredit him, during a hearing of the digital, culture, media and sport select committee of MPs in which the governing body was repeatedly castigated for a perceived lack of action against discrimination and a lack of support for cultural change.
A week after the England and Wales Cricket Board published three separate reports in an attempt to demonstrate the steps they have taken to combat discrimination in cricket the hearing will have made extremely awkward viewing at Lord’s.
