An investigation will be launched by Warwickshire and ECB into alleged racist abuse directed towards a section of spectators during Day 4 of the rearranged fifth and final Test between England and India at Edgbaston. Azeem Rafeeq, who last year had levied allegations of racist abuse, bullying and harassment on Yorkshire, highlighted the issue by sharing some of the posts. Edgbaston ground's official Twitter handle responded to one of the former all-rounder's tweets: We're incredibly sorry to read this and do not condone this behaviour in anyway.
