The Yorkshire County Cricket Club (YCCC) today confirms that it has admitted four amended charges in the Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) proceedings brought by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), resolving liability.

All of the charges relate to conduct which may be prejudicial to the interests of cricket and/or may bring the ECB and/or the game of cricket into disrepute. Such conduct is said to have occurred between 2004 and 2021.

The parties are to appear before the CDC Panel, on a date to be confirmed, to make submissions as to sanction.

While the proceedings are ongoing, the Club is unable to provide further information in relation to the case.

Lord Kamlesh Patel, Co-Chair of Yorkshire County Cricket Club, said:
“Today’s announcement is an important step forward for Yorkshire County Cricket Club as part of its journey to learn from the past. Since becoming Chair it has been clear that we needed to accept and take accountability as a Club for the cultural issues which allowed racist and discriminatory behaviour to go unchallenged.

“We should be proud of the work that has been done to build new foundations for a Club whose ambition is to become truly welcome to all. As I leave the position as Chair, it is fundamental that the recently installed Board and leadership team at the Club continue on this mission and I know that they are as committed as I have been to bring Yorkshire back to where it should be, on and off the pitch”.
