We all know after the death of George Floyd a fire has been spread against the apartheid. The world witnessed several protests against the white-black system. Many professional persons have spoken on this issue before. Now, it was turned for England’s all-rounder Moeen Ali.
‘I can say from my heart, I never felt the racism’ says Ali
England and Wales Cricket Board has faced an allegation of discrimination recently. Azeem Rafiq who plays for Yorkshire in country cricket in England has put an accusation of ‘institutional racism’. The duo, followed by former international umpire John Holder and aspiring Officer Ismail Dawood, has put an inquiry into this matter.
After the moment of #BlackLivesMatter, everyone is taking these allegations seriously including the International Cricket Board (ICC). They both have felt that the non-whites candidates are not selected as the match official and this selection is quite unfair.
In between this, England’s 33-year-old all-rounder Moeen Ali has shared that he hasn’t faced any kind of racism in his entire career and he is not ready to believe the accusation facing by the English Cricket Board.
Moeen Ali is with the England cricket team who is in South Africa for the white-ball series. While addressing the reporters in Cape Town on Wednesday, he said that he can say it by putting hands on his heart that he hasn’t witnessed racism of any kind in his entire career.
He believes that if we were scoring runs and if we were taking the wickets in a team’s win we will play. He added that he is been in England for the last six years and he has always felt England as his home, who is a practicing Muslim.
Though he didn’t say that the accusations are wrong, he admitted that some may have faced this and he asked to believe in him that things are improving, ECB is working in a positive direction.
Well, when asked about his importance for the team, he said that playing for one of the best sides and being a part of it is great always. He was asked this because he isn’t playing test cricket for a long time since the Ashes last year.
He wants to work on his skills and to improve his level so that he could join the team in red-ball cricket. He is so eager to play the test matches.
Matters like racism can be seen seriously. Not only ECB, but other cricket boards should also look into their system to find whether the situations are good or not. Sometimes players don’t report on this. So, this is the responsibility of every board to take care of its players.
