A report on racism in Scottish cricket, carried out by equality and diversity group Plan4Sport, has found the governance and leadership of the sport to be institutionally racist. Commissioned by Sportscotland last year, the review highlighted 448 examples that demonstrated institutional racism. An anonymous survey was carried out as part of the review, with 62% of those who responded saying they had experienced, seen or had reported to them incidents of racism, inequalities or discrimination.
- A lack of any equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) or anti-racist training in place for board, staff, volunteers, players, coaches or umpires;
- No consistent mechanism or process for handling racist incidents;
- A lack of diversity from board level to coaching;
- Lack of transparency in the selection process in the talent pathway and the absence of a single uniform approach to selection.
