    Any responsible employer would suspend the individual whilst they carry out a preliminary investigation for the following reasons:

    there is strong evidence in the public domain that racist and sexist comments have been made
    he has admitted responsibility
    the comments will almost certainly breach the ECBs code of conduct and means he is guilty of gross misconduct
    this maybe a criminal offence that becomes a Police matter

    The investigation will need to determine whether he has ever made any other similar comments or behaved in appropriately in the past such as being or having previously being a member of an organisation that promotes race hate. It will also need to establish that his current views on these matters do not contravene the ECBs code of conduct. The reputation of the ECB is at stake and any organisation will prioritise itself over the individual.

    So not over the top at all and the minster should have kept his snout out.

    The player gets picked for England, people will follow him on Twitter & some will trawl his posting history. Most likely the media will run the latter.

    His attitudes were equally wrong 7-8 years ago.

    Boris is in agreement with him.
  4. Jeremy Coney's voice on TMS makes me want to put the TV commentary on!

    Watching it via highlights it looked pretry shambolic to me. Too many getting out playing loose shots...often the same shots.
    As usual.

    Looked like a 400 first innings pitch to me....l suppose we might scramble to 300 but definitely NZ in the hunt.

    Great to see 18,000 people enjoying watching the cricket and getting on with their lives. I’m sure it will annoy the lockdown lovers who would see us back in lockdown indefinitely if they had their own way.

    At least we’ve got up to 300. Good knocks from Wood and Lawrence.

    Let’s see how NZ get on now.
