England cricket team wears anti-discrimination jerseys

Ahead of the second Test at Edgbaston, the England cricket team players wore black anti-discrimination T-shirts as they repeated the “moment of unity” gesture from first Test at Lord’s.

The black jersey that the England players wore had the logo of the England team and had “Cricket is a Game for Everyone” inscribed on the front.

The gesture comes after pace bowler Ollie Robinson was dropped from the second Test as some of his old racist and sexist tweets went viral on the first day of the first Test.

The England and Wales Cricket Board is being criticised for not repeating “taking the knee” gesture they showed last summer when West Indies toured the country.

ECB has also been accused of racial discrimination by a couple of umpires.
