Michael Vaughan has been dropped from the BBC commentary team for the next Ashes series in Australia. It is due to a “conflict of interest” in the wake of a racism allegation.

Details:

The allegations have been made by Pakistan-born former Yorkshire player Azeem Rafiq. According to Rafiq, Vaughan allegedly warned him and other Asian Yorkshire players that there were “too many of you bunch, we need to do something about it.” Rafiq adds that he said it during a country match in 2009. The claim has been denied by Vaughan. Following Rafiq’s remarks, Vaughan has been removed from his BBC radio show earlier this month.
