Butler-Morgan's shoddy tweets were revealed, then the former captain came to the rescue, said - no one felt bad at first
At this time in England cricket, there is a lot of ruckus about the old tweets of the players. On one hand, the England team, captained by Joe Root, is engaged in a two-handed fight against New Zealand in the field, on the other hand, objectionable tweets of some players of the team are being exposed. This new headache of English cricket, which started with an 8-year-old tweet by fast bowler Ollie Robinson, who made his debut at Lord's Test, has become the cause of most discussion. However, many do not agree with the decision of the England Cricket Board (ECB) to trace these old tweets and take investigation and action based on them. Michael Vaughan, the former captain of the team, has expressed surprise at the uprooting of the fabricated dead and the reaction being shown to them.
Robinson, who was making his debut on the first day of the Lord's Test against New Zealand on June 2, came out in tweets from 2012 and 2013, in which Robinson, then 18-19 years old, made many racial, apartheid and sexist remarks. Robinson then apologized, while the ECB started an investigation calling it shameful and Robinson was currently suspended from international cricket.
suddenly everyone started objecting
Even after this, there have been similar cases related to some other players. One-day and T20 team captain Eoin Morgan and vice-captain Jos Buttler, while the most successful fast bowler James Anderson's old objectionable tweets have also surfaced. Both types of reactions are coming out regarding this. Former England captain Vaughan has said that it is surprising to now object to old tweets. He wrote in his tweet,
“When Morgan, Butler and Anderson tweeted, no one seemed insulted by it at the time, but it is surprising how it has all started to look offensive in the last few years. Absolutely bullshit A strange search has started, but it must stop."
Prime Minister Johnson also raised questions on ECB
The British government was also angry at Robinson's suspension of international cricket. UK sports and culture Oliver Dowden has even said that the ECB has crossed the limit by giving such punishment. At the same time, the Prime Minister of the country, Boris Johnson, also supported the point of his minister and called it wrong. The ECB is currently investigating all these cases.
