Yorkshire and racism in cricket – full interview | Final Word


Part 2 of The Final Word Weekly, Season 11, Ep 5.

Few bigger weeks for the show to return: this was the week when Azeem Rafiq’s testimony to a parliamentary hearing shook cricket in the UK, after years of him reporting racist conduct as a player at Yorkshire have been dismissed and covered up. It was an extraordinary moment of truth. The ramifications may be felt more widely than in one country. To take us through the story we have Taha Hashim, the journalist who first interviewed Rafiq about his treatment, as well as broadcaster and former player Nikesh Rughani.
