ECB hosts Iftar dinner for the first time at Lord’s Cricket


LONDON : The English Cricket Board broke barriers by hosting its first-ever Iftar Dinner at the Lord’s Cricket Ground to promote diversity and inclusion in sports.

The Iftar dinner was hosted by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), attended by several high-profile dignitaries and was hosted by renowned commentators Atif Nawaz and Tamina Hussain.


Since the Azim Rafiq racism scandal at Yorkshire Cricket Club, the ECB has been making active efforts to promote a positive and inclusive culture in the sport. Azim Rafiq also attended the Iftar Dinner at Lord’s.


Apart from Rafiq, other prominent cricket personalities like England’s white ball captain Eoin Morgan attended the historic event.

The ECB’s effort has been praised by the cricket fraternity for taking the initiative to promote its positive image on the international stage.

A sensational video of Maghrib Azaan being said at Lord’s Cricket Ground was shared by Sky Sports Associate Producer Nakul Pandey on Twitter.

He captioned the video, “You don’t need to be a person of faith, just a soul owner to find prayers resonating around Lord’s Long Room spine tingling. A beautiful moment.”

Eoin Morgan also took to Twitter to praise the ECB’s effort to promote inclusivity.
