London, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 19th Oct, 2021 ) :England will take the knee alongside the West Indies ahead of their T20 World Cup opener in Dubai on Saturday, according to captain Eoin Morgan.
The teams took part in the anti-racism gesture when the West Indies toured England for a three-Test series in 2020, with limited overs skipper Morgan's side following suit during a one-day international series against Ireland.
England men's team then abandoned the practice, leading to criticism from West Indies great Michael Holding, who said: "Now that the West Indies team has gone home, that doesn't mean that you still shouldn't be respecting the message and exactly what it stands for." Morgan, however, said his side would reinstate the gesture this weekend.
"It hasn't been cleared up whether that's a possibility yet."
