Australian Cricket Still Has A Long Way To Go In Terms Of Inclusivity Of Races: Usman Khawaja

Racism in sports is the most disheartening thing anyone related to the game can experience, be it a fan or a player or someone sitting in the authorities. It destroys the complete spirit of the sport and leads to destruction of unity among players in the game.

During the game every player belonging to any race always gives his hundred percent on the pitch for his team but a horrible act like racially abusing someone undermines the efforts given by the players on the field. Various sports including football and cricket have given a strong clear message that racism is intolerable and anyone who is involved in such activities shall be punished severely.

No place for racism in any sport:

Recently after the incident involving a black man and a white policeman in US went viral protests broke out in several nations of the world giving a clear message that ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER’. When sports resumed this message was also displayed in the stadiums and on the jerseys of all the players.

Khwaja’s comment:

Usman Khwaja, the former opener of Australia said that Australian team still has a long way to go in terms of inclusivity of races. He complimented the women’s team which has been demonstrating solidarity for the Indigenous culture, for taking the lead in this matter.
