Game Time: The Azeem Rafiq case, and the journalist who got him to open up

The allegations of racism made by the former cricketer Azeem Rafiq have shaken the Yorkshire club (one of UK’s biggest county cricket clubs), and has led to the resignation of several top officials. The person who got Rafiq to actually open up about his past is the noted cricket journalist, George Dobell. This week on Game Time, Indian Express’ Chief cricket writer Sriram Veera talks to Dobell about the entire scandal, how insidiously racism affects the sport and young players, and what cricket clubs around the world need to reckon with.

Dobell is currently working with The Cricketer, the world’s oldest cricket magazine.
