Ollie Roninson suspended from all forms of international cricket

Ollie Robinson Suspended: All -rounder player Ollie Robinson, who made his international debut for England in Lord's Test, has been dropped from the national team by the England Cricket Board. From the day of his debut, some of his old controversial tweets started going viral on social media. In the year 2012 and 2012, Oli had made some tweets of racial and gender discrimination, which were now going viral. 

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has instituted a disciplinary inquiry regarding these controversial tweets. Until its report comes, this 27-year-old Sussex young player will not be able to play in the England team. 

After the Lord's Test was drawn on Sunday, the ECB issued a press release saying, "Robinson will no longer be available for the second Test and will have to leave the England team immediately."

This young all-rounder showed a great game in his debut match against New Zealand. For England, he took a total of 7 wickets in his name and also contributed 42 runs in batting. After the match, captain Joe Root also praised his game. Joe Root said that this young player has the talent, which is needed in Test cricket.

When this young player had seen his old controversial tweets going viral on the very first day of the match, then he also expressed regret over the incident. He had said that these are old tweets, which he did when he was a teenager. But in reality he is not a person of racial or gender discrimination.

In these old tweets, he had made hate tweets against the Muslim community and people of Asian origin. As soon as he got a chance to play for the England team, these old tweets of his were covered on social media.
