Cricket officials are to deploy undercover spotters into the crowd at Edgbaston during Saturday’s T20I between England and India in a bid to combat racist abuse.
Mark Boucher’s tenure as head coach of the Proteas must end in the wake of him lying about racially offensive behaviour, failing to lead decisively on issues of race and Enoch Nkwe’s resignation for being undermined, writes RYAN VREDE.
Stories like the one Paul Adams shared about allegedly being called a “brown sh**” by current Proteas head coach Mark Boucher and other teammates is exactly what the Social Justice and Nation Building (SJN) hearings should be about, writes RYAN VREDE.
Cricket for Social Justice and Nation-building (SJN) hearings were meant to be a platform for those testifying to expose deep inequalities in cricket. There’s been painfully little of that, and more subjective fluff that is derailing what was a noble and necessary process, writes RYAN VREDE.
England debutant Ollie Robinson faces an uncertain international future after racist, sexist and Islamophobic tweets were uncovered. Those excusing it as ‘immaturity’ don’t understand the impact this has on the targets and cricket. It’s time to stop the excuses and severely punish offenders, writes RYAN VREDE.
