Tom Harrison, chief executive of England And Wales Cricket Board, has issued a statement following a meeting with the chairs of the 18 first-class counties, representatives of the 21 non-first class cricket boards, the national counties cricket association and the MCC.

It comes in the wake of the growing racism scandal, which Azeem Rafiq lifted the lid on in his testimony in front of MPs, earlier this week.

“Azeem Rafiq has a shone a light on our game, that has shocked, shamed and saddened us all,” the statement said.

“Racism and discrimination is a blight on our game. To Azeem and all of those who have suffered or experienced any form of discrimination in our sport, we are truly sorry.”
