The England and Wales Cricket Board are looking into allegations of racial abuse towards a Surrey player.

Ryan Patel claims he was targeted during their game with Yorkshire at Scarborough this week. 

A spokesperson for the ECB said:

“We are aware of the allegation and are working with the counties to establish the facts.”

Alec Stewart, Director of Cricket at Surrey CCC, said:

“We’re fully aware of this unsavoury incident and have every confidence that the ECB and Yorkshire will deal with it in the appropriate manner”

Yorkshire CCC have declined to comment. Patel took 1-14 as Surrey claimed a 7 wicket victory over the White Rose.
