Former England skipper Michael Vaughan has sided with current captain Eoin Morgan and battalion goalkeeper Jos Buttler after an old Cricketers tweet allegedly reappeared as mocking fans. The English language used by the fans seems to be written in a way that makes fun of Morgan and Buttler’s old posts. After recovering the old tweets, the England Cricketers had a serious reaction, but former skipper Vaughan believes the “witch hunt” should stop. “No one was insulted at the time they tweeted at the time of Morgan, Buttler and Anderson’s tweets but it’s amazing how offensive they seem a few years ago !!!!!! Absolutely ridiculous … The witch hunt has started but to stop,” Vaughan tweeted.

If Anderson said last week has been very difficult for all live members, things could get complicated as the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has made it clear that they have a zero tolerance policy for any kind of discrimination.
Ollie Robinson was suspended from all international cricket on Sunday, following tweets published in 2012 and 2013 as a result of a disciplinary investigation.
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Sports Minister Olivier Dowden have criticized the ECB for interrupting Robinson from international Cricket for tweets he sent as a teenager.
Meanwhile, England Test Patron Joe Root has admitted that some “uncomfortable things” have emerged over the past week, but players need to continue to find ways to educate them to improve the sport.
