Athletes and teams around the world are kneeling to support the ongoing “Black Life Issues” campaign. The cricket player also did his job. When the West Indies visited England in July, players from both teams bowed their knees before the first test in Southampton.
Officials also participated in the game, and the two groups of players have their logos printed on their jerseys. In the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL), several players bowed their knees to express their support for the global movement calling for an end to racism.
However, this posture is unlikely to be seen when England and Australia lock the horns in the upcoming T20I series. Before the first T20I, Australian captain Aaron Finch said he would not protest. Aaron Finch also stated that his English opponent Eoin Morgan is on the same page as him. Open hitters believe that in addition to these protests, it is also important to educate people.
“I have talked to Eoin (Morgan) and we will not make specific gestures like in the past. The Australian said at a virtual press conference: “Education around it is more important than protest. ”
“For us, we are proud to be able to celebrate this grand game all over the world. Anyone can play it. It doesn’t matter which race, religion or nationality you are from. Cricket is a game for all people. I am very proud.
England and Australia will participate in 3 T20I games, and then starting from September 4th, there will be as many ODIs. The first T20I is planned for the Rose Cup in Southampton, and the third and final ODI will be held on September 16. After the series, players from the two teams will travel to the UAE to participate in IPL 2020.
