The English cricket team is keen on not being left behind in the ongoing displays of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement on the field. In its upcoming game against West Indies, the English cricketers will don shirts bearing a Black Lives Matter badge planted on the collar.
That badge is the same one that has appeared on the English Premier League shirts in the wake of protests against the killing of George Floyd, an African American man, who suffocated after a white police officer drove his knee into his neck.
It has emerged the potent badge was designed by Alisha Hosanah, who according to reliable sources is a partner of Watford’s captain Troy Deeney.
““It is important to show solidarity to the black community and to raise much needed awareness around the topics of equality and justice. The England players and management are unified in this approach and will use the platform of international cricket to fully support the objective of eradicating racial prejudice wherever it exists, ” Joe Root, the captain of the English Test team said.
