A PARLIAMENTARY committee report on cricket's racism crisis is due to be published on Friday.

Members of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) committee heard powerful testimony from former Yorkshire player Azeem Rafiq in November last year and will set out their findings later this week.

His allegations of bullying and racial harassment were upheld by the county in an independent investigation but the club decided not to take action against any individuals.

On the same day the committee heard from Rafiq, it also heard from the current and former chairs of Yorkshire - Lord Patel and Roger Hutton - and from England and Wales Cricket Board chief executive Tom Harrison.

Rafiq said attempts to raise complaints about the discriminatory treatment he faced at Yorkshire fell on deaf ears.

Chief executive Mark Arthur resigned four days before Rafiq's appearance before the committee, while Yorkshire announced on December 3 that director of cricket Martyn Moxon and head coach Andrew Gale were among 16 members of staff who had been dismissed.

Lord Patel said on November 8 that the county had settled the separate employment tribunal claim from Rafiq.

On November 29 the ECB published a game-wide 12-point plan to tackle discrimination, with Harrison admitting the sport had been hit by an "earthquake" following the allegations of racism at county level from Rafiq and other players.

The plan includes a governance review of the ECB, which will consider whether the sport needs an independent regulator.

It will also tackle dressing-room culture, attempt to remove any barriers that exist in the talent pathway and make cricket a more inclusive environment for players and spectators.

Organisations have also been set targets for board diversity to include 30 per cent female or locally representative ethnicity by April. Compliance will be subject to a "comply or explain" provision.

ECB central funding could be withheld where equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) minimum standards are not met.

Elsewhere, Yorkshire batter Harry Brook has been added to England's IT20 squad for the five-match series against West Indies in Barbados.

Brook is called up as batting cover for Sam Billings who was included in the squad for the fifth Ashes Test in Hobart.
