Yorkshire have accepted there was “no question” Azeem Rafiq was the victim of racial harassment and bullying during his first spell at the county.

Last summer, Rafiq made serious allegations about his time at the club, forcing Yorkshire to appoint lawyers to launch an investigation with an independent panel also put in place to oversee it.

A summary of the panel’s findings and recommendations was finally published on Friday.

A statement from county chair Roger Hutton said: “There is no question that Azeem Rafiq, during his first spell as a player at YCCC, was the victim of racial harassment.

“He was also subsequently the victim of bullying. On behalf of all at YCCC, I wish to extend my sincere, profound and unreserved apologies to Azeem and to his family.”
