Ban on Ollie Robinson by ECB

ON MONDAY, the UK culture secretary stated that the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) ranked “over the top” after the suspension of fast bowler Ollie Robinson from all international cricket for his past racist and sexist comments on Twitter.

Robbinson already apologized for his past tweets in 2012-2013, when he made his Test debut against New Zealand at Lord’s.

The tweet recently went viral in the last few weeks.

The ECB suspended the 27-year-old on Sunday, but the disciplinary investigation is still pending on this incident.

“Ollie Robinson’s tweets were offensive and wrong,” Dowden tweeted.

But that tweet was almost a decade ago by a teenager. And now that teenager is an adult guy and has rightly apologized.
The ECD has topped the board, but they should think again about the suspension.

Robbinson stated from his side that during that tweet, he was going through a difficult period of his life, and a senseless 18-year-old teen had tweeted that.

He also stated that he deeply regrets his actions, and he is very ashamed of making such remarks. He was thoughtless and irresponsible, and regardless of his state of mind at the time, his actions were inexcusable. However, since that period, he has matured as a person and entirely regrets the tweets.

“I want to make it clear that I’m not racist and I’m not sexist,” Robinson said.

But this apology is not much enough for ECB. As a result, Robinson will not be available for the second Test against New Zealand at Edgbaston.

ECB noted recently that England and Sussex bowler Ollie Robinson had been suspended from all international cricket pending a disciplinary investigation following historic tweets he posted in 2012 and 2013.
“He will not be available for selection for the second Test against New Zealand starting at Edgbaston on Thursday (June 10). Robinson will leave the England camp immediately and return to his county.”
