The reports of Ollie Robinson’s racist tweets from the past have been doing rounds on the internet. In fact, the matter heated up so much that Sussex’s player had to put a public apology for posting racist things in the past. In the same line of events, certain other big names from England including Jos Buttler, Eoin Morgan have been found guilty of mocking Indian English in the past.
Former New Zealand skipper and current KKR head coach Brendon McCullum has also found himself under hot water along with mentioned English players for indulging in the same act. Recently, some deleted old tweets of the trio resurfaced and they showed them possibly making fun of Indian English as they talked in improper and tattered ways.
‘josbuttler Sir, you play very good Opening batting,” tweeted McCullum whereas Morgan added, “Sir you’are my favourite batsman.”
The senior English duo of Morgan and Buttler has been under fire especially for their actions as the issue went viral on social media. None of the players or ECB have taken charge of the same and Indian fans are demanding strict action against the accused cricketers. The active players can be in some trouble if ECB takes up the matter seriously.
Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler part of IPL for long
Last year, a group of cricketers was seriously dealt by Cricket Australia as they indulged in the same type of activity. A section of U-19 cricketers from Australia including Tanveer Sangha mocked the Indian accent of English over an Instagram post made by Fraser-McGurk. Later, all were admonished by CA. All the revelations have come after Robinson had to issue a public apology for his actions. ECB has even added that they may launch a further investigation in the matter.
Both Buttler and Morgan have been part of the Indian Premier League for over a decade and their above-mentioned action would certainly not go well with the Indian fans. It will be a thing to see if ECB will take up the matter severely or it will disappear within few days of time.
