England right-hander Chris Jordan has revealed that his team is considering a knee injury in the upcoming T20 World Cup. England is one of the first cricket teams in the world to kneel against racism.
The English team has not bowed down since August 2020, when they did so in a one-on-one match against Ireland at home. Instead, they have found ways to do this, including wearing T-shirts in anti-apartheid sports.
“We’ll talk and if people feel strong, we will. On the flipside, if we don’t, then we won’t,” Chris Jordan said, according to The Telegraph.
The idea of giving up kneeling led to Michael Holding, a former West Indian official, being criticized. He has been one of the leading figures in the fight against discrimination from the cricket family. Last summer in England saw them and new Zealand taking a ‘one-minute’ boost to inclusion in the game.
The West Indies want to kneel in their first World T20 match against England
West India Superintendent Kieron Pollard has said he may be on his knees as the team approaches. But Pollard announced he would not force anyone to do so. The most beautiful round said:
“From my experience right now, I think it’s something we’re continuing because it’s something we strongly believe in, as a team. We believe, we can continue to show our support for what I think is close to our hearts.
‘Everyone has their own ideas when it comes to racism and Black Lives Matter and all these things. I can’t tell them what to do or expect anything because sometimes when you expect things from people you get frustrated. “
England and the West Indies decided to kneel on the Test list last year following the death of Minnesota police officer George Floyd. The two teams will meet for the first time in the World T20 since the Test series in 2020.
