England will be a part of the West Indies in sporting a Black Lives Matter logo on their shirts during the three-test cricket series beginning subsequent week.
England introduced its determination on Thursday, three days after the West Indies made its name to help racial equality and justice.
On their collars, the gamers will put on the logo of a black fist with the phrases “Black Lives Matter,” designed by Alisha Hosannah, the associate of Troy Deeney, the Watford soccer team captain.
“It is important to show solidarity to the Black community and to raise much needed awareness around the topics of equality and justice,” England captain Joe Root stated in a press release. “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.
“The majority of us do not understand what individuals from BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic) background have to go through when people make judgments because of the color of their skin. As a group, we are learning about this and educating ourselves.”
The first test starts on Wednesday in Southampton.
