James Anderson says that England’s players are committed to “improving ourselves as people”, as the build-up towards Thursday’s second LV= Insurance Test against New Zealand at Edgbaston continues to be overshadowed by Ollie Robinson‘s suspension for a series of historic offensive posts on Twitter.
Anderson, who will take over from Sir Alastair Cook as England’s most-capped player if selected for his 162nd Test, said that Robinson’s mid-match apology had been accepted by the team, although the issue is unlikely to die down in a hurry, following Monday’s revelation that another player involved with the team had been found to have posted racist remarks as a 16-year-old.

“It is a difficult time,” Anderson said. “As players we are trying to learn from this, and realise it’s important to try to get educated around these issues. We continue to do that with the ECB and PCA [Professional Cricketers’ Association], we’ve been doing workshops before the series to improve ourselves as people, basically. To try to make sure this doesn’t happen.”
