MIDDLESEX CRICKET STATEMENT

MIDDLESEX CRICKET STATEMENT

This morning, when giving evidence at the DCMS Select Committee hearing, former Yorkshire cricketer Azeem Rafiq, stated that he has been contacted by a former Middlesex player who has made allegations of potential discrimination.

Last week, the Club issued a statement to underline Middlesex’s zero tolerance policy on discrimination of any kind. The Club firmly stands by this statement.

With this allegation coming to light this morning, we would urge the player in question to contact the Club immediately, directly to Chief Executive Officer Andrew Cornish, to enable us to handle this matter in the strictest confidence, with the utmost speed, and as a matter of the highest urgency. Discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated at Middlesex, and this matter will be fully investigated.

Middlesex Cricket wants anyone who feels they have been discriminated against to know that they should feel comfortable when speaking about and sharing their experiences, safe in the knowledge that their complaint will be listened to, handled in the most sensitive manner, and dealt with.
