Michael Holding furious over Australia and England for not supporting 'Black Lives Matter'

Michael Holding, who won the hearts of all with his bowling in West Indies, has taken Australia and England on target for not supporting Black Lives Matter (BLM) in the current series. In England and West Indies series, although both teams met, their support was given to this movement. While Holding now told Sky Sports, "The West Indies team is now home, it does not mean that you do not respect the message and for whom it is".

According to him, "Racism is more in America than anywhere else, but people all over the world took the responsibility to spread this message and gave this message that it is time we stand for equality. This is the time when everyone gets justice. England and the West Indies supported the Black Lives Matter during the series. Apart from this, he had also done the work of supporting this movement by sitting on one knee". 

Australia's limited-overs team captain Aaron Finch had said before the series that the team will not sit on the knee because education is more important than the protest. Now Holding said "Finch says that he is a part of the game in which no one is stopped from playing, ignoring caste, gender and religion. I do not know any game in which it has not happened. This is a bad excuse. I am not asking anyone here to do what they do not want to do. If you feel that you do not have sympathy with this movement then just say it. Don't make bad excuses".
