The lawyer of a professional cricketer has hit out at “tone-deaf” delays to an internal investigation that risks “legitimising racism” at their client’s former employer.

Last August, all-rounder Azeem Rafiq spoke out against his treatment by Yorkshire County Cricket Club (YCCC). Rafiq said the club “ignored” reports of racist behaviour directed towards him resulting in his “lost faith in humanity”.
