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. Ollie Robinson will leave the England’ team camp immediately and return to his county after starting the investigation.
 

England all rounder Ollie Robinson was supend on 6 june after decision taken why ECB on his inappropriate tweets in 2012. Ollie Robinson looked in a great form when he came to bowl for England in test cricket for first time. He send new Zealand’s batsman in pavilion for seven time with conceding just 101 runs. He bowled 11 maiden overs also.

Why he got suspend ?

He make tweet against ‘racist and sexist ‘ on mmuslim community and asian ethnicity. When tweet goes to ECB then ECB promised to investigate the full matter and If he got gulity then ECB take strict action against him.

What England’s captain Joe Root added on this ?

I could not believe them [the tweets], personally. I didn’t really know how to take it on the surface. I think the most important thing is Ollie is part of this dressing room and we had to support him. We had to try and do everything that we could to give him an opportunity to learn and understand he has to do better.

I think it is a great lesson for everyone within our game that we can all do more. We all have to keep looking to educate ourselves, trying to better the environment for everyone, trying to be as inclusive as we can, keep making everyone feel comfortable to play what a wonderful sport we have.

What Ollie Robinson said on this ?

On the biggest day of my career so far, I am embarrassed by the racist and sexist tweets that I posted over eight years ago, which have today become public. I want to make it clear that I’m not racist and I am not sexist.

I deeply regret my actions, and I am ashamed of making such remarks. I would like to unreservedly apologise to anyone I have offended, my teammates and the game as a whole in what has been a day of action and awareness in combatting discrimination from our sport.
