ECB Has Suspended Ollie Robinson After They Found His 2012-13 Tweets

The old tweets came into light when Ollie Robinson made his test debut against New Zealand at Lords. But those tweets had racist and sexist remarks in 2012, and because of that, the England and Wales Cricket Board has suspended the seam bowler of England, and he will not be part of the last Test match against New Zealand at Edgbaston from Thursday.

Robinson had a great debut at Lords. He took seven wickets in the match, and he also scored vital 42 runs in the first innings. As a result, England successfully drew the game in the end.

But the bowler from England and Sussex has been suspended because of the in-disciplinary actions on Twitter posted in the 2012 and 2013 season.

England will not have the services of Ollie Robinson for the second Test match against New Zealand, which will be played at Edgbaston from 10th June. Robinson will leave the test squad immediately and re-join the county camp with Sussex.

After the first day’s play at Lords, Robinson said that this day would be the most cherished day of his life and he feels embarrassed on the tweets, which he posted in 2012 and 2013, which has been made public today. However, he clarifies that he is not racist and sexist.

 Robinson deeply regrets his action, and he apologises for making such remarks to everyone he has offended, including his teammates and the game. The tweet was not made in the awareness of combatting discrimination in the sport.

Ollie Robinson’s debut was exceptional, said the England captain Joe Root. But Root also said that the off field action on Twitter is not acceptable. Root said that Robinson showed a high-class quality with bat and ball in his debut. He has the quality to become a successful Test cricketer.

But whatever has happened off the field is not acceptable, and we all know that. Robinson spoke to the dressing away about this issue. He even addressed the players and some media outlet who fronted up to it. He has been remorseful from that point, which has been genuine because he is the part of the team and the group.
