    Ollie Robinson suspended from all international cricket

    That stops his international career after 5 days. Feel for the lad.

      A lot of this comes down to optics. The ECB can't say "Ah lads, it was a while ago. No need to do anything." They probably are thinking the same things most of us are in that they were the comments of an immature teenager who probably thinks differently now.
      They have to be seen to do something otherwise it comes across as condoning the tweets. An apology and education probably won't cut it. So suspended for a game while investigated shows they are doing their part and the player gets a punishment that is probably enough is most people's eyes.

        I agree . Stupid boy but it was 8 years ago and he was only 18. Personally think a fine and some education would have served the purpose.

          He's suspended pending an investigation, no punishment has been administered yet.

            Robinson, 27, has been dropped from the squad for the second Test, which begins on Thursday at Edgbaston.

            You suggesting that is due to his performance...?

              He hasn't been dropped, he is suspended meaning he isn't available for selection.

              After the investigation has been carried out there will likely be a hearing where the allegations will be addressed. If it is found that he has breached any part of the disciplinary code he will be issued with a sanction.

              That sanction may include a cricket ban of some sort. It is not inconceivable in that case that the Edgbaston test will retrospectively be counted as part of that ban.

              It's not rocket science zed.

                Hmm not sure you are getting this mate .. Of course the suspension is a punishment otherwise he would be playing on Thursday and he has been dropped .
                I agree with the rest of your paragraphs but if you donít understand he has been punished then canít help you on this debate .

                Not sure how he can be investigated for a breach of a disciplinary code he wasn't aware off or under a contract to follow when he was 18. That code only becomes viable when you are contracted/selected to play for England.

                If every cricketer was investigated for stuff, however nasty or stupid, they did as a teen, then there would be no England cricket team.

                  You or I aren't party to the express terms and conditions of his contract. I would imagine, and hope that there is a stipulation in it asking if there are any skeletons in the cupboard so to speak. Specifically anything that might bring him or the organisation into disrepute.

                  I donít see why he should get any suspension or fine for something that happened before he was an international cricketer. It was foolish and childish and he is not that same person he was at that time. He shouldnít have done it but how many of us including the stuffed shirts of the cricketing authorities can stand up,and say that they have never done anything that they would be embarrassed by if it were to be disclosed?

                    depends what he said really, you can try and explain away to the cows come home, but if he said racist stuff he should have a big ban

                      Have you ever told a racist joke, or laughed at one? Ever done something you know was wrong? I would guess that very few of us can say no to all of that. Now think about someone making it public. How would you feel about it losing you your job or a massive fine.

                        Playing for my local cricket club two seasons back and can insure everybody that he is a gentleman and has been foolish .years ago to have texted rubbish and vile, just been shafted by a nasty person.

                          what tosh, so the guy who highlighted his racism is a nasty person, but the racist is a solid person. Oh, i see your logic now.
                          How fickle some can be when the sniff of a new star in cricket comes on the scene .... its just very inconvenient isnt it!

                            No, I'm pretty consistent on this I think. If he's been "good" all these years then a lesson has been learned so an apology should be enough now. If he does it again then by all means throw the book at him.

                            As for whoever brought it to light, it has obviously been timed for the maximum impact. That doesn't sound altruistic to me.

                            By these rules everyone who was ever a teenager would have said something bloody stupid and have been banned. Good job social media didn't exist when we were young to record every comment for some holier than though person to drag up from a different era
