Just outcome needed over Yorkshire County Cricket Club allegations to restore pride at Headingley - The Yorkshire Post says
This was the first opportunity Mr Vaughan has really had to give his version of events – but is the only person of seven individuals charged by the England and Wales Cricket Board for bringing the game into disrepute to attend the Cricket Discipline Commission hearings.
He has little to lose, with his reputation already affected by the accusation that he remarked in 2009 about four Asian players that “there’s too many of you lot”, which he denies.
Elsewhere it has been argued that, at multiple levels, procedure and due process has failed this cricket club and the individuals affected by the allegations.
Sixteen people associated with YCCC were relieved of their duties, some of whom categorically deny any wrongdoing but are seemingly so fearful of the ham-fisted way that the authorities have tackled the saga that they do not wish to give testimony.
They have absolutely lost trust in institutions such as the ECB and Parliament.
Last year’s Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee show trial, as we have called it, gave only one version of events, which was accepted without any meaningful test or challenge.
Everyone involved in this mess deserves the right outcome according to their contribution to what happened, whether that is accepting wrongdoing or being cleared, so that the club and the county can finally get back to being proud of playing cricket at Headingley.
