Three more England players, including skipper Eoin Morgan, have courted controversy over their troublesome tweets, just days after England pacer Ollie Robinson was suspended for racist and sexist remarks.
Old Tweet From England Bowler
An old tweet from England bowler James Anderson’s account was discovered by a netizen, in which he made a derogatory remark about fellow teammate Stuart Broad.
“I saw Broady’s new haircut for the first time today. Not sure about it. Though he looked like a 15 yr old lesbian!”
Anderson, who this week will become the most-capped Test player in history, responded to the controversy.
“For me, it’s 10-11 years ago, I’ve certainly changed as a person. And I think that’s the difficulty, things do change, you do make mistakes,” he said.
Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler have been charged with a considerably more serious offense
“If there are any tweets from years ago we do have to look at that and again learn from this and be better in the future, try and make sure we know it’s unacceptable to use these sorts of phrases and language,” Daily Mail.
Suspension Of Ollie Robinson
Ollie Robinson’s racist and sexist comments from 2012 were discovered during his Test debut. Robinson apologized on the ECB’s official website after his earlier posts went viral.
“England and Sussex bowler Ollie Robinson has been suspended from all international cricket pending the outcome of a disciplinary investigation following historic tweets he posted in 2012 and 2013. He will not be available for selection for the LV= Insurance second Test against New Zealand starting at Edgbaston on Thursday 10 June. Robinson will leave the England camp immediately and return to his county,” ECB said
