An independent panel affirmed seven of the 43 claims.

Yorkshire, however, released only a summary report. BBC Sport was informed by a spokesperson for England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), that they still await the complete report and have requested a copy.

BBC Sport reached out to Yorkshire and Rafiq's spokesperson but they declined to comment.

Rafiq's spokesperson reiterated last week his call for the findings to published in full. He added: "The summary was provided in effect by the defendant – Yorkshire. Azeem was not allowed to review the report, comment on it or respond.

"Yorkshire was forced to admit racism, bullying, and other issues despite all that. What is Yorkshire's full report?
