James Anderson said on Tuesday that he was trying to learn Cricketers lessons in England at “difficult times” after Ollie Robinson interrupted racist and sexist tweets for historic tweets. Robinson’s international career has been interrupted following a successful test against New Zealand last week, with social media posts posted in 2012 and 2013 awaiting investigation by the Cricket Board (ECB) in England and Wales. to be aware of a second unknown player who posts “offensive material” on social media and also to know the intervention of Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Veteran Anderson Paceman, who is set to become one of England’s most tested players this week, said the players are “trying to learn” from the situation.
“We have realized that it is important to try to educate ourselves on these issues, and we continue to do so with the ECB and the PCA (Professional Association of Cricketers),” they said.
“We’ve all been doing workshops before this department to try to improve ourselves as a person and basically prevent things like this from happening,” he added.
Prime Minister Johnson on Monday backed his culture and sports secretary’s comments that the English cricket’s governing body had gone “upside down” by abandoning the 27-year-old.
If Anderson is selected for the second round against New Zealand, which starts in Edgbaston on Thursday, he will win the 162-cap record, Robinson has apologized for the tweets.
“Yes, we make mistakes, everyone makes mistakes and we have to try to improve people and make sure things like this don’t happen and people are aware that it’s not acceptable,” Lancashire said quickly.
“(Robinson) stood in front of the team and apologized and you can see how honest he was and how upset he was,” Anderson said.
“I think as a team, we are grateful to be a different person now. Since then he has grown and grown a lot and has gotten the full support of the team,” he said.
Anderson, 38, was asked to carefully review his posts, which began in 2009.
“For me, it’s 10-11 years ago. I’ve definitely changed as a person … I think that’s the difficulty, things change, you make mistakes,” he said.
“It’s definitely something we need to look at. But again, if we educate people properly, if we educate them enough, the language of those tweets doesn’t come out first,” Anderson concluded.
The first test of the two-game series ended in a draw.
