England fast bowler Ally Robinson is set to take a break from cricket as he makes his Test debut against New Zealand. The ECB has been suspended from international cricket for its social media comments until the result of the disciplinary hearing. He was accused of making obscene and racist comments on Twitter in 2012 and 2013. Robinson took seven wickets in the first Test against the Kiwis. He scored 42 in the first innings when he was allowed to bat. This test match was a draw.
Ollie Robinson’s County Cricket Club Sussex gave this information today. They will not be available for two Vitality Blast T20 matches. Sussex condemned Robinson’s tweet and said he would learn it later. The county does not take any disciplinary action against them. Sussex has released a statement saying Ollie has decided to take a break from the sport to spend time with his young family. We will be releasing an update on the re-joining of Oli.
However, Ally Robinson apologized after the matter came to light. After his old tweets went viral, Robinson apologized, saying, “I’m ashamed of my pornography and racism. I shared it on Twitter 8 years ago and it’s coming up today.”
The fast bowler said he apologized for such an act and was too embarrassed to make such comments. These tweets were made when he was facing the worst phase of his life, as an English county Yorkshire teen was expelled. Most notably, the second Test of the two-Test series is being played between England and New Zealand. Due to the suspension, he was not included in the team. England have replaced Ally Robinson with Ally Robinson.
