England batsman Gary Ballance has apologised to his former teammate in Yorkshire for racist language used while they played together at Yorkshire.
A statement by the Club said: "Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted that Gary Ballance and Azeem Rafiq have cleared the air. Gary’s contrition is admirable and marks a big step forward for the sport and the Club.
Azeem is right to say that Gary must now be allowed to continue with his career. We will undoubtedly support Gary in all he does, and we hope to see many more runs flow from his bat for Yorkshire."
