Earlier this year cricket great Michael Holding criticised the Australian and English teams not taking the knee to mark support of the Black Lives Matter campaign – and rightly so.
To make amends, the Australian team, have decided to make a slightly different gesture.
The international and domestic, mens and women teams will form a circle while barefoot in acknowledgement of the global movement against racism.
The lack of acknowledgment at the recent ashes series was sloppy and thoughtless. This new gesture will hopefully go someway in making up for the past mis-step.
