England pacer Robinson free to resume career

Ollie Robinson is free to play for England again after receiving an eight-game ban -- five of them deferred -- for offensive tweets he posted several years ago, the England and Wales Cricket Board announced on Saturday, reports AFP. The 27-year-old pace bowler will be available for England's forthcoming matches including the five-Test series with India as a disciplinary panel deemed him to have already served the three-game ban. He was also fined £3,200 ($4,400). The seamer was suspended from England duty pending an investigation after historic racist and sexist posts made between 2012 and 2014 re-emerged during his Test debut in the first Test against New Zealand in June.
