The England Cricket Board (ECB) is now investigating England's limited overs skipper Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler’s past tweets. Reports suggest that Buttler and Morgan mocked the Indians by addressing them as ‘Sir' in the tweets.

Along with them, former Kiwi cricketer and current KKR coach Brendon McCullum had also reacted to Morgan’s Tweet where he mocked the Indian fans.

Buttler has already deleted the tweets after criticism on social media. Reports suggest that the ECB will investigate the matter thoroughly before taking a call on the duo.

Moreover, England pacer James Anderson is also receiving a lot of criticism because of an old tweet in which he had called fellow pace bowler Stuart Broad a '15-year-old lesbian.'

Anderson has clarified that he has changed as a person since then. The whole fiasco started when the England Cricket Board decided to suspend Ollie Robinson from international cricket for his racist and sexist tweets.

Reacting on Robinson's suspension, England coach Chris Silverwood said, “What should have been one of the greatest days of Ollie’s career didn’t end up well for him. It was disappointing for the group. It was a stark reminder for us all of the responsibilities that we hold in the position that we are in."

After the Robinson incident, tweets of many other English players too have gone viral on social media.
