England captain Eoin Morgan opened his mouth on Friday about the Yorkshire racism crisis. Previously, the England Cricket Board banned the club from hosting any international and major matches, even including the hundred final. Morgan backed ECB as they took strong actions against Yorkshire country in the Azeem Rafiq racism allegations case. He believes that such sensitive issues need to be dealt with ‘head on’.

The Yorkshire racism crisis attracted all kinds of governmental attention and has also shaken the cricketing world. The chairman Rodger Hutton resigned after the crisis. Also, their sponsors Nike, Yorkshire Tea, and Emerald terminated their sponsorships in the last 24 hours.

Morgan said when asked about ECB’s decisions, “Yeah, to be honest, I think if they’re matters of an extreme or serious nature like these are, they need to be met head-on, and for us as a team, that’s exactly what we want to see.”

He further added, “Obviously, the investigation is ongoing and live at the moment, so only time will tell what happens, but I think the actions by the board have demonstrated how seriously the ECB are taking how this has been handled,” he said at the pre-match press conference ahead of England’s T20 World Cup Super 12 match against South Africa. Yes, we want to see this brought in a great light, but equally, if there is an issue as serious as this, we want it dealt with, as well.”
