Chair responds to ECB statement regarding Yorkshire County Cricket Club

4 November 2021

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee Chair Julian Knight MP said: 

“The ECB’s action in taking international cricket away from Yorkshire should act as a short, sharp shock to bring the club to its senses. Like the rest of us, I imagine the members of Yorkshire County Cricket Club will be questioning why the board is still in place.

“As for Mr Ballance, I’m choosing at this time not to comment on the specifics of the case. However, it would have been completely unacceptable if they had left him eligible for selection for the England cricket team.”
