Azeem Rafiq says Asian players were told to sit near toilets in Yorkshire dressing room

The Daily Mirror says Azeem Rafiq has told MPs that Asian players at Yorkshire were told to “sit over there near the toilets” whilst giving evidence on allegations of racism at the club.

Speaking at a Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee hearing, an emotional Rafiq also spoke of having to turn to medication as he battled with his mental health.

All-rounder Rafiq had two stints at the county between 2008 and 2014, and 2016 and 2018, having made his senior debut at the age of just 17.

His evidence of institutionalised racism at the club during his time there have rocked English cricket, and led to the resignations of club chairman Roger Hutton and chief executive Mark Arthur.
