The Professional Cricketers’ Association calls in the lawyers as English cricket braces itself for an avalanche of discrimination claims amid racism storm

  • The Professional Cricketers’ Association has appointed a five-strong legal team 
  • The players’ union is preparing for an avalanche of discrimination claims 
  • English cricket has been rocked by racism storms at Yorkshire and Essex 











The players’ union has employed a new five-strong legal team to help players on both sides of the fence as English cricket braces itself for an avalanche of discrimination claims.

The Professional Cricketers’ Association, an organisation of whom Azeem Rafiq was highly critical following the investigation into his allegations of racism at Yorkshire, have corresponded with the country’s cricketers past and present to tell them of the free expert advice.

Individuals have been instructed to make contact by email, and a follow-up phone or video call with one of the panel will then be arranged.

‘There is no room for discrimination of any kind within cricket,’ read the PCA missive. ‘As the PCA looks to navigate its way through the issues raised, it is imperative that we remain impartial in any situation involving our members either as victim of, or being accused of, discrimination of any kind and offer the appropriate level of support to all those affected.’
