Former England umpire John Holder has criticized the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for his statement that he and his teammate Ismail Dowd have withdrawn corporate racism. Holder accused the ECB of making false and misleading statements after its discrimination claim.
Holder told ESPN Cricinfo, ‘Our case against the ECB has been dismissed based on legal rules. None of the rights I have made have been revoked. “The ECB’s statement language makes it clear to any reader that we have accepted their stance and that we have backed down,” he said. Nothing like that has happened. We still believe that the ECB is institutionally racist.

Recently, former West Indies fast bowler Michael Holding commented on racism: ‘Racism cannot be eliminated altogether. The knee-jerk gesture of support for racial discrimination should be real, not formal, but he does not believe in telling people what their options should be. Racism is always there, racism is always there. Getting rid of racism completely is like saying you’re going to get rid of crime altogether. It’s impossible. ‘
