England and Wales Cricket Board admitted that there is racism in its cricket system in the whole country and this game is not untouched but the board is committed to change it.
The ECB said in a statement on Friday that we should learn from the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement after the killing of African-American George Floyd by a white policeman in Minneapolis.
Cricket is not untouched by racism
The ECB said, “We have heard carefully from people in recent weeks about their experiences of being black in cricket, sports and society.” We praise him for being vocal on this important subject. He said, “We know that racism is spread in the system of institutions and regions across the country and we also know that our game (cricket) is not untouched by this. ‘
Joffra Archer has also talked about racism
Players from all over the world are joining the protest against the racism. In addition to England fast bowlers Joffra Archer and James Anderson, West Indies’ Darren Sammy and Chris Gayle are also included. These players spoke out against racism, supporting ‘Black Lives Matter’. England pacer Jofra Archer said that he had racist comments during the New Zealand Tour last year.
The 25-year-old Archer, who played on the England team, was born in Barbados. He received British citizenship because of his father. He made his international debut last year playing in England.
The ECB said, “We really believe that the game of cricket is for everyone, but it is sad to know that there are some obstacles for many communities to enjoy it.” We have tried to make this game available to more people across the country and break the barriers. It is our resolve to improve our structure of the game. ‘
