Jahid Ahmed has become the third former Essex player to allege he experienced racist abuse at the club, saying he "felt like an outsider all the time". Former bowler Jahid told The Cricketer he came to "dread" going to the club, which he represented from 2005 to 2009. He alleged that he was bullied by a senior coach and his voice was mocked by some players and some members of the coaching staff. Former Essex players Zoheb Sharif and Maurice Chambers have also opened up about racist abuse they say they suffered at the club.
