Former England batsman Graham Thorpe said Ollie Robinson showed his true form on the second day of the first Test against New Zealand at Lord’s. Tharp said, ‘It was a difficult day for Robinson. He should have apologized to the dressing room and the world for what he did eight years ago. It was very difficult for him in that sense, but he knows he made mistakes and that’s why he needs to apologize.

He said, ‘We had to support him in our dressing room too and we were really happy because he showed good manners. He had to suffer so much because of what he did. It was not easy to perform back on stage and I think their level of achievement in the first innings of the first Test was phenomenal.

Thorpe acknowledged that in the future, England should do more to assess the player’s social media history before selecting a player. This is a factor that needs to be looked at in the future, he said. Significantly, Robinson had to apologize for tweeting about racism and sexism between 2012 and 2013 after the first day of the first Test against New Zealand.
