Cricket Scotland: Four members quit anti-racism group over dissatisfaction with governing body’s handling of racism.

Four members of Cricket Scotland’s anti-racism and EDI advisory group have resigned due to the organisation’s handling of tackling racism. Last week, Cricket Scotland chair Anjan Luthra claimed progress had been made by the governing body. However, this claim was criticized by anti-racism group Running Out Racism, which called it “unsubstantiated nonsense” and criticized Cricket Scotland’s “tone-deaf” and “arrogant” update. Scotland international Abtaha Maqsood, Running Out Racism’s Raza Sadiq, businessman Imran Khan, and academic Khadija Mohammed have resigned. Consequently, funding body SportScotland is now holding “urgent discussions” with Cricket Scotland. Read on to know more about the issue of institutional racism in the Scottish cricketing community.
