HIGHLIGHTS

  • Majid Haq calls out Scotland players for ‘deafening silence’ after racism report
  • The board of Cricket Scotland apologised and resigned on Sunday
  • Scotland face New Zealand at the Grange in Edinburgh on Wednesday

Majid Haq has slammed the Scotland players for their “deafening silence” after the publication of a report which found the governing body institutionally racist. The revelations made by Haq and Sheikh led to a review of Scotland Cricket.

Earlier, Rafiq, Scotland’s all-time leading wicket-taker, and Sheikh mentioned that they were treated with racist behavior because of the colour of their skin.

The review, backed by SportScotland, was published on Monday, July 25. The report, published on Monday, found the governance and leadership practices of Cricket Scotland to be “institutionally racist”.

On Tuesday, their lawyer Aamer Anwar questioned the point of Scotland’s players taking a knee before games to protest racism at the Twenty20 World Cup last year when “no white team member has chosen to say anything much or at all over the last few days.”

In response, Haq tweeted, “Looks like it was nothing other than a bit of virtue signaling (and) tick box exercise because the deafening silence from a lot of them speaks volumes.

“They might feel uncomfortable but their privilege is never having to think you’ll not make the team because of racism.”

The board of Cricket Scotland apologised and resigned on Sunday, a day before the report was published, and interim CEO Gordon Arthur issued a “heartfelt apology” to all victims of racism and discrimination on Monday.

Scotland face New Zealand at the Grange in Edinburgh on Wednesday in a T20 encounter, the first of a three-game series against the tourists.
