Michael Vaughan has said he was sorry for the pain his former Yorkshire teammate Azeem Rafiq endured due to racism he experienced at the club. ‘Iā€™m sorry for the hurt he has gone through,’ the former England captain said of Rafiq. ‘It hurts deeply, hurts me that a player has gone through so much, been treated so badly at the club that I love.’
