Sydney: Fast bowler Pat Cummins said that Australia’s men’s cricket team would register their protest against every racism by making a barefoot ring against racism before every international series. Cummins admitted that his team had not done much against racism before.
Cummins has said, ‘We have decided to stand barefoot. We want to do this in every series and it was a very easy decision for us. Once you get to know about this thing then it is an easy decision. We are against racism not only as a sport but also as a human being ‘.
He said, ‘We can raise our hands and say that we have not done much against it in the past, but we want to do better. So it is a small thing that we want to add this summer ‘.
Pat Cummins said that players can express their stand in this way in a different way, but as a team, they found it best to stand barefoot.
He said, ‘At the same time we are going to work on our education. We are going to learn about our history of Australia ‘.
