The issue of racist comments made by England players has become very serious. After Olly Robinson, now England’s limited over cricket captain Eoin Morgan has also faced very serious allegations. Not only this, the Indian Premier League franchise can take action against Eoin Morgan and coach Brendam McCullum due to racist comments.
According to the information revealed, in 2018, Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler made fun of Indian fans. Both these players also got the support of McCullum in making fun of the fans. Some players have removed their old social media posts. But their screenshots are going viral on social media.
KKR has made it clear that it will not tolerate remarks like racism. KKR CEO said, “We do not have much information to take action in the matter as of now. We want to know the whole matter before reaching any conclusion. We make it clear that any comment like racism will not be tolerated.
ECB will take strict steps
After Olly Robinson, the England Cricket Board has also ordered an inquiry into Morgan and Butler’s case. The ECB issued a statement saying, “We have been investigating the matter since last week. All the players who have made racist remarks on social media or in public are being investigated. We have no place for any kind of discrimination here. Strict action will be taken against the culprits after the investigation is completed.
Let us inform that the Board of Control for Cricket in India has not said anything on this matter yet. There is also a response from Jos Butler and Eoin Morgan on the matter related to the racist remarks.
