Black Lives Matter movement: jason holder needed to give new direction to anti-racism movement in cricket: Jason Holder said – need to give new direction to anti-racism movement in cricket

New Delhi
West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder believes that the anti-racism movement in cricket should not be confined to a gesture of support by kneeling before matches.

Holder said it must have some meaning. The ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement started in America after the death of African-origin George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer. West Indies were one of the first two international teams whose players supported it on one knee.

According to ESPNcricinfo, Holder said, ‘I had some discussion about it and I think some people think that this is an ineffective action taken before matches. I want to see some new initiatives to revive this movement.

On This Day In 1986: On this day, 25 years ago, India had hoisted the tricolor on the ‘Mecca’ of cricket for the first time, the British were mated by 5 wickets.
He said, ‘I didn’t want people to just think that they are kneeling for ‘Black Lives Matter’ because that is the tradition, this is the practice. It must have some meaning.’
