Cricket Scotland Board Resigns in the Aftermath of Racism Report: Scotland’s leading wicket-taker, Majid Haq claimed in a report that Cricket Scotland was “institutionally racist”. He gave this statement to British broadcaster Sky Sports. His former teammate, Qasim Sheikh also claimed to have suffered from the racist abuse.
Haq had not been seen playing since he was sent home from the 2015 World Cup. The lawyer representing the two players, Haq and Qasim, said that the report could be devastating for Scotland Cricket.
In the joint resignation letter to interim CEO Gordon Arthur, Cricket Scotland’s board members apologised for their behavior and what they had overseen in regards to racism and culture. The board said, ” We are all truly sorry and have apologised publicly to everyone who has experienced racism, or any other form of discrimination, in cricket in Scotland.”
