England will take another public stance against discrimination on the second test

England will take another public stance against discrimination ahead of Thursday’s second test against New Zealand before attempting to regain attention for their exploits on the pitch rather than their off-pitch rumors.

Last week’s draw at Lord’s was largely overshadowed by the emergence of racist and sexist historical tweets from rookie Ollie Robinson with the issue spiraling in recent days as a number of other players found their feeds on the social media put under the microscope.

The England and Wales Cricket Board, which has already suspended Robinson pending an investigation, has decided to evaluate each case in an effort to live up to its publicly stated standards of inclusiveness, but Captain Joe Root has set his own. answer.

He will once again lead England in a “moment of unity” involving both teams and match officials at Edgbaston and, as they did before the Robinson drama unfolded, the hosts will wear T-shirts with the words ” cricket is a game for everyone “alongside seven different slogans that refute prejudice.

“It has been an uncomfortable week for everyone. But we are committed to making a positive change in our sport. This doesn’t change just because of what happened, “he said on the eve of the match.

“It doesn’t change anything in terms of how we want to do things moving forward. We will continue to wear those shirts, we will continue to find ways to educate ourselves as players and as a group, and we will continue to find ways to improve our sport.

“We are still very committed to this, also in light of what has happened. This will not affect us. If we can do this and keep trying to get that message across, a lot of good can come from the back of some bad things that have happened in the last week. “

“It has been an uncomfortable week for everyone. But we are committed to making a positive change in our sport. This doesn’t change just because of what happened. “

A combination of bad weather and England’s conservative approach to the chase on the last day made any chance of a positive result miss last week, leaving everything to play in Birmingham.

The match will take place in front of the largest home crowd for nearly two years, up to 17,000 a day after the game was named as a government pilot event, and Root would like to give them something to remember.

“We are all very aware of being in show business,” he said.

“We all want to be a part of those games, those special games that provide that entertainment. If opportunities arise, we will definitely try to be aggressive. I don’t want us to be seen as a negative team playing a boring brand of cricket.

“It will be great to have (so many) people inside, enjoying the sport practically sold out again. It’s something we have been missing as a team and we can’t wait to do it. “

New Zealand will be captained by Tom Latham after Root’s usual opponent, world number one hitter Kane Williamson, decided to rest an elbow injury before next week’s World Test Championship final.
