Ravichandran Ashwin “Sorry” for Ollie Robinson, The Suspended England Cricketer | Cricket News

Ravichandran Ashwin was “really feeling” that he was a fast-paced English ball for Ollie Robinson, who was suspended from all international cricket in England and Wales by the Cricket Board (ECB) in 2012 and 2013 after recovering racist and sexist Twitter messages from his account. Robinson, who made his debut in the first test against New Zealand that ended at Lord’s on Sunday, will miss Edgbaston’s next test as a result of the break. “I understand the negative feelings that # OllieRobinson had a few years ago, but I really feel like I was suspended after a wonderful start to my testing career,” Ashwin said in a tweet.

“The suspension represents what this future generation of social media represents,” Ashwin added.

Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer added a scathing comment to Ashwin’s tweet when he quoted and tweeted, “I’m glad I retired and then found Twitter.”

Robinson was 4 laps 75 and 3 26 in his first test and had a debutant Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor and Devon Conway as he scored a double double in the competition.

“England and Sussex bowler Ollie Robinson has been suspended from all international cricket until the result of a disciplinary investigation following the historic tweets published in 2012 and 2013,” says the ECB document, published shortly after the end of the Lord’s Test.

“They will not be selected for the second test of LV = Insurance against Edgbaston in New Zealand starting on Thursday, June 10th.


“Robinson will leave the English camp and return to his county,” the document says.

Robinson, 27, has 286 wickets out of 64 first-class games in 20.88 and 1709 first-class races in a century and a half to seven centuries.
