Fast bowler Ally Robinson, who made his Test debut against New Zealand in England, made significant contributions through ball and bat but was suspended from international cricket after the match. After Robinson’s debut, some of his old tweets began to go viral, in which he made racist, obscene tweets against women. This was followed by disciplinary action against the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). Robinson has been suspended from international cricket until the results of the disciplinary hearing come out. R Ashwin has said in his favor on this whole issue.
Ashwin wrote on Twitter, ‘I can understand the negative sentiments of what Robinson did years ago, but I am very sorry for him as he faces a suspension despite a good start to his Test career. This suspension shows what can happen to social media generations in the future.

Robinson made a huge crack on Twitter in 2012 and 2013 for his comments on pornography and racism. However, he apologized after the matter came to light years later. Robinson made a memorable performance with the ball, taking seven wickets with the ball in Sunday’s draw against the Kiwis, but hitting a brilliant 42 in the first innings when he was allowed to bat.
