Joe Root reiterates that he cannot recall any instances of racism at Yorkshire

England captain Joe Root stands by his statement that he cannot recall witnessing any instances of racism at Yorkshire. Azeem Rafiq said he found Root’s denial of ever hearing racist language “hurtful” when he gave his harrowing testimony to MPs earlier this month concerning the abuse he suffered over two spells at the county. Rafiq found Root’s comments, made before the appearance before the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport committee, “strange” and said it indicated how normalised such language had been at Yorkshire.
