IPL 2021: Won’t comment on Eoin Morgan’s tweet controversy says KKR CEO Venky Mysore

Buttler, Morgan and McCullum in trouble as old tweets allegedly taunting Indian English resurfaced.

The trio of Jos Buttler, Eoin Morgan and Brendon McCullum might get into trouble for allegedly mocking Indian English accents via their Twitter account. The three senior cricketers’ tweets resurfaced soon after English debutant pacer Ollie Robinson issued an apology for his irresponsible racist and sexist tweets.

Robinson’s tweets dating back to 2012 resurfaced on the internet as soon he got his test cap during ongoing England vs New Zealand test series, following which the cricketer issued his apologies. 

If the reports are to be believed, the cricketer is expected to be penalised with a ban and a fine from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) over his old controversial tweets.

In the wake of the controversy that stirred the fire, three other cricketers, English limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan, his white-ball deputy Jos Buttler and current New Zealand coach Brendon McCullum have now found themselves under hot water as old tweets from these cricketers have begun resurfacing allegedly mocking the Indian accent (Indian English).

All the three aforementioned senior cricketers have been associated with the elite Indian Premier League (IPL) for years now, but their tweets dating back to 2017 and 2018, were found allegedly mocking the Indian accent.

None of the Cricketers and their respective cricket board have issued an apology on the matter that has taken fire on the internet.
