Independent Commission for Equality in Cricket

27 Jun 2023

A report by the ICEC has published 44 recommendations to the ECB. The 1st and overarching recommendation is below with the full list available via the link. If anyone has any comments, issues or suggestions on the governance of Berkhamsted CC then please contact Tim Buckley (Chair) or any other committee member. 

Recommendation 1

We recommend that the ECB makes an unqualified public apology for its own failings and those of the game it governs. The apology should acknowledge that racism, sexism, elitism and class-based discrimination have existed, and still exist, in the game, and recognise the impact on victims of discrimination. It should include, in particular, a direct apology for the ECB’s and the wider game’s historic failures in relation to women’s and girls’ cricket and its failure to adequately support Black cricket in England and Wales.
