Tony Jones has called out the “lack of consistency” from the International Cricket Council in light of Australian cricketer Usman Khawaja’s shoes being banned for having the words “All Lives Are Equal” on them.

Jones said Khawaja’s shoe statement was “based on humanitarian grounds, and maybe even a call for peace” and referred to Australian coach Andrew McDonald and spinner Adam Zampa not being penalised for staying tight-lipped during the national anthem a month ago.

“Where is the consistency?” Jones said.
