Azeem Rafiq racism case: Yorkshire cricket chairman and board members resign

Sports reporter

The chairman was the first to go, and later on in the day two more members of Yorkshire County Cricket Club joined him in resigning.

There were apologies to the player, Azeem Rafiq, for the racism he experienced at the club, and criticisms of “a culture that refuses to accept change”.

But now the discussion is about how far that culture extends and who needs to take responsibility for fixing the problems of racism in cricket.
