Sydney Thunder’s players decided at a meeting held on the morning of their opening match of WBBL|06 that they would take a knee at all games in support of a global stance against racism.
Thunder captain Rachael Haynes said it was a unanimous decision to make the gesture before the first ball of a match is bowled.
“Essentially, the players have indicated they want us to take a knee in support of the stance against racism,” said Haynes.
“This is a tournament that attracts international players and is viewed all over the world, and we want to show we’re absolutely committed in our stance against racism.”
A very special @WBBL shirt presentation 💚
