British asian street culture
Please refresh the page and retry. B ritish Asian cricketers are deterred from getting to the top of the sport because they are put off by club drinking culture, England and Wales Cricket Board researchers have said. Figures show that South Asians, who make up five per cent of the population, account for 30 per cent of recreational cricket players in England and Wales - but make up just four per cent of players on the professional field. Just to be near the alcohol was not a positive environment for a number of the players. So there were issues around dignity and behaviour that emerged that were not conducive to the way the South Asian players lived their lives. I said well what alternatives do you have apart from alcohol and the bar, think about what you can offer, have you asked them..?
