New Delhi: West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder believes that the anti-racism movement in cricket should not be limited to a gesture of kneeling before matches and it should have some meaning.
The 'Black Lives Matter' movement was started in America after the death of African-origin George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer. West Indies were one of the first two international teams whose players supported it on one knee.
Holder said, 'I had some discussion about it and I think some people think it is an ineffective action to be done before matches. I want to see some new initiatives to revive this movement. "I didn't want people to just think that they are kneeling for 'Black Lives Matter' because that's the tradition, that's the practice," he said. It must have some meaning.'
The former West Indies captain also urged the players to do more to take forward the anti-racism movement ahead of the series against South Africa.
