ECB update on Azeem Rafiq and Yorkshire CCC

Exterior view of the ECB offices

"Last week we received Yorkshire CCC’s report into the racism and bullying allegations Azeem Rafiq made against the club. 

"We are conscious about the length of time that Azeem has waited for resolution and the toll that must be taking on his wellbeing and that of his family.  We are sorry that, as a sport, this has not yet been resolved.

"We will conduct a full regulatory process that is fair to all parties, but also ensure this happens as quickly as possible. To achieve this, we have secured the services of a QC, along with other external investigatory support to upweight resource around our process. The ECB Board has also reaffirmed its commitment to further additional resource, should the investigation require it.

"We are aware that The Select Committee have called Yorkshire’s Chair, Roger Hutton to give evidence. In the meantime, we will press ahead with our investigation."
