London: England’s talented bowler Oli Robinson has been suspended from all forms of international cricket ತನಿಖೆ pending an investigation into racist and sexual Twitter messages. The Board of Control for Cricket in England and Wales (ECB) announced on Sunday that Robinson will miss next week’s second Test in Edgbaston.
Robinson was part of the England squad for the first Test at Lord’s last Sunday. But his career with bat and bowling has been shut down due to racist and sexual Twitter messages he made in 2012 and 2013.
“The outcome of the disciplinary inquiry into Twitter posts posted by Robinson in 2012 and 2013 is pending, so he has been suspended from all international cricket,” the ECB statement said.
“He will not be available for selection for the second Test against New Zealand, which starts in Edgbaston on Thursday, June 10. Robinson will leave the England camp immediately and return to his county.”
He led England 4-75 in the first Test at Lord’s and 3-26 in the second innings and scored a useful 42 at bat.
But after being stumped on Wednesday, his first day in Test cricket, Robinson noticed that he had not apologized, tweeting comments indicating that Muslims were linked to terrorism and making derogatory statements about women and people of Asian heritage.
Their Twitter controversy came to the fore again before both teams played on Wednesday for the ‘Moment of Unity’ created to show their opposition to discrimination. Robinson, in a statement released after Wednesday’s game, said he was “embarrassed” and “ashamed” of the post today. “I am not an advocate of racism, I want to make it clear that I am not a sexist,” he said.
England captain Joe Root spoke after the stumps on Sunday before Robinson’s announcement of his suspension, tweeting “I could not trust him personally.” Said. However, he acknowledged that Robinson had “shown considerable remorse.”
