Former England cricket team captain Michael Vaughan has taken on West Indies all-rounder Marlon Samuels for a foul against Ben Stokes. Samuels made a comment on his Instagram account about Stokes ‘wife, stating that his skin color is better than Stokes’ wife.
Vaughan expressed displeasure over this and said that these things do not suit Samuels and especially not at a time when the whole world is trying to eradicate racism.
Former Australian spinner Shane Warne has also criticized the statement to Samuels.
The West Indies and England teams were first involved in the Black Lives Matter campaign to end racism. During the series between England and West Indies, players as well as match officials and staff also raised their voices against racism by sitting on their knees.
