The Yorkshire hearing was delayed until 2023, according to the ECB
Disciplinary proceedings into charges relating to allegations of racism at Yorkshire County Cricket Club have been delayed until next year.
A hearing on the charges facing Yorkshire and seven people was due to begin on November 28.
The hearing was decided earlier this month would be carried out in public.
However, appeals against the decision to hold the hearing in public will have to be heard first, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced.
As well as Yorkshire, former England internationals Michael Vaughan, Matthew Hoggard, Tim Bresnan, Gary Ballance, ex-Scotland international John Blain and former Yorkshire managers Andrew Gale and Richard Pyrah have been charged by the ECB.
The ECB said “some of the respondents have lodged appeals” following the decision by its Cricket Disciplinary Commission panel – the Commission usually operates in private.
“Appeals are now due to be heard and therefore the full CDC hearing on the ECB’s charges against Yorkshire CCC and a number of individuals will no longer start on 28 November,” the ECB added.
“This hearing is now expected to take place in early 2023.”
The charges followed allegations by former Yorkshire player Azeem Rafiq, who was found to have been the victim of bullying and racial harassment in Yorkshire.
Last year, he gave evidence to a committee of MPs suggesting that English cricket was “institutionally” racist.
His testimony led to an overhaul of the county’s leadership.
It also prompted the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to draw up a 12-point plan to tackle racism in the game.
