West Indies captain Jason Holder has expressed frustration over the fact that the Black Lives Matter campaign is not part of IPL 2020.
Dubai: West Indies captain Jason Holder has expressed frustration that no Indian Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) is showing ‘solidarity’ in promoting ‘Black Lives Matter’ (BLM) and supporting the world. The most suffocating league has completely ignored this propaganda.
Holder, a member of the IPL’s Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) team, made the statement while receiving the prestigious Peter Smith Award from the West Indies cricket team at an online event hosted by the Cricket Writers Club.
Holder (Jason Holder) said, ‘Honestly, there wasn’t a word about BLM here. Sometimes it feels like it’s been ignored which is sad. I think we need to reiterate its importance so that people understand what is going on in the world.
He said, “Kovid-19 has certainly attracted a lot of attention, there is also a sudden focus on the US election. But it is important for us, especially the Caribbeans, to continue our education as blacks. ‘
Holder (Jason Holder) said, ‘Cricket West Indies has done a great job of raising awareness about this. In England, the women’s team wore the Black Lives Matter logo during the series and continued the campaign.
The knees began to bend during the West Indies series in England. I tell you that it has become an anti-apartheid symbol after the assassination of black American George Floyd by a white police officer in Minneapolis, USA. However, this was not done during the series against Pakistan and Australia.
