Former Yorkshire cricketer, Azeem Rafiq has reportedly been accused of flashing his private parts. In a report filed by a former England physiotherapist, it is said that two different incidents of the same nature happened in 2012. The first incident happened during the T20 Blast in August of that year. At that time, he is alleged to have flashed his private parts at a hotel cleaner.

The second incident is said to be during the Champions League in South Africa two months later. It is said that this time, the former left-arm spinner exposed himself to a masseuse. Notably, the report says that the incident was reported to the Yorkshire CCC last year. However, it claims that no action was taken at the time.

“Mr Morton on 15 November 2021 had a discussion with Lord Patel at which he disclosed to Lord Patel that a female massage therapist had reported to Mr Morton that Azeem Rafiq had exposed himself to her whilst on tour in South Africa in 2012, a tour at which Mr Morton was not present,” the High Court papers state as reported by the Telegraph.

“Mr Morton explained to Lord Patel that on the massage therapist disclosing the incident to Mr Morton, Mr Morton reported the matter to Colin Graves, who was then the Defendant’s Interim Chief Executive. Colin Graves asked Mr Morton to investigate and produce a written report of the incident, which Colin Graves stated he would consider in conjunction with the board. Mr Morton did as requested and spoke to both the female massage therapist and Azeem Rafiq, and produced a written report which he provided to Colin Graves.”

The case against Azeem Rafiz is a ‘campaign of lies’: Azeem Rafiq’s spokesperson

In reply to the allegation, a spokesperson of the former cricketer has dismissed the allegations by saying that this is just a ‘campaign of lies’.

“Every time they have been shown to be incorrect and falsified, details always changing. This twisted campaign of lies has been never ending and it has seriously compromised Azeem’s and his family’s safety, which is why he has left the country.”
