Robinson has had a decent debut, shame about what else has went on for him...
You've put the mockers on Robinson there mate!
Out for 42 from 101 balls.
burns deserves his 100 here, hope someone can hang in there with him, running out of partners
Well done Burns.
Well done Burns. Superb
NZ two down now. We're making a decent fight of it.
Absolutely. Reckon the papers knew a put this for years, but in true newspaper bullshit style, they wait until the biggest day of his career to try to destroy him.
not condoning what he did, but I did far far worse at his age and regret it there was (thankfully) no social media back then
Also, he looks the real deal. Broad as good as they are, won’t last forever. Although he’s 27 isn’t he!!
Decent start from England. Looks like Taylor fancies walloping a few though.
Tasty game, this. 240 lead with 5 wickets remaining.
Root coming on to bowl. Eh?
What do I know?
Nicholls c Burns b Root 23 (NZ 159-6)
Terrific catch by Burns there.
Lunch declaration is great for the game of cricket not just this match
No idea what openers are available, but Sibley is so horrible to watch
Ridiculous decision to suspend Robinson IMO.
Crazy stuff. If they were going to suspend him they should have done it as soon as this came light. Saying that, they should have done their homework, already known about it and had a plan to deal with it and backed the lad.
Second player under investigation for Tweets made when they were.........16.
Frightening what British society is becoming. I also see Michael Carberry has piped up saying Robinson should’ve been suspended and cricket is racist blah blah blah, **** off man you clown. All this because a 17 year old wrote some admittedly poor tweets almost a decade ago.
It's crazy. Our press can't wait to stick the boot in at every opportunity as well
So, what will happen to ME?
In 1963, aged 19 I was sent to Aden.
There were about 10,000 Service personel there and the (almost ) universal word for the Locals was the abrieviated, 'Western Oriental Gentleman'.
Fellow service personel, in The Orient, also had local names.
So should we all now be hung out to dry?
Surely there has to be a new law where (historical tweets from 10 years ago, when the perp is below a certain age, and from before that person had the responsibilities he/she has today) cannot be dredged and brought up from the depths of the internet and has the potential to completely ruin his life. If it is proven that he still has these views then he deserves all he gets. If it is proven that he doesnt and was just being a stupid immature tit, then just a slap on the wrist should suffice.
