Cricket Australia blasts ‘blatantly racist’ abuse of Dan Christian – Yahoo Sports




An irate Cricket Australia has slammed online trolls as “uneducated” after all-rounder Dan Christian was targeted for speaking up about “casual racism” in the sport.

Christian, one of just six indigenous people to play for Australia at international level, took part in a panel discussion this week, “Cricket Connecting Country”, commissioned by the governing body.

Christian told the panel, whose purpose was to encourage more Aboriginal people to play cricket and address issues like racism, that he had experienced the problem first-hand.
