- Idea he pressured Rashid is ‘categorically untrue’ says Rafiq
- Rashid backs up Rafiq denial at Cricket Discipline Commission
Azeem Rafiq has told a Cricket Discipline Commission hearing that claims he blackmailed the England player Adil Rashid to support his case against Michael Vaughan are “categorically untrue”.
On the second day of the hearing into racism in Yorkshire cricket, Rafiq accepted there were some discrepancies in his evidence, including precisely what Vaughan had said to four Asian players before a T20 match against Nottinghamshire in 2009.
