Since Its Inception The Hundreds Organizers Have Condemned Online Racist Abuse Directed Against Players And Others

The Hundred’s organizers have revealed that racist remarks have been directed towards ‘players and others’ on social media since the event’s inception.
The Hundred began earlier this week, with eight franchises – each with a men’s and women’s squad – playing in matches with each team bowling 100 balls.
Organizers issued a message to social media on Sunday morning saying that anyone who posts racial remarks is “not welcome here.”
Organizers of the Hundred have stated that racist insults have been posted online since the commencement of the event. Those sending racist sentiments ‘are not welcome here,’ according to the statement.
Sport, in all of its forms, has the capacity to unify and inspire people.
Cricket is no exception.
But, we will not tolerate racism or other forms of abuse.
‘Unfortunately, we have recently witnessed these inappropriate online behaviors directed at our players and others.’
‘We, along with the rest of cricket, are united in our opposition to all types of prejudice.’
On many things, you can disagree with us, but not on that.
Those who do so are not welcome here.’ This is our statement in response to recent remarks made by players and supporters at The Hundred.
