England skipper Eoin Morgan and wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler are under investigation by the English cricket board after their alleged racist tweets, mocking Indians, surfaced on social media.

As per reports, Buttler and Morgan mimicked the Indians by calling them ‘Sir’ and allegedly mocked them. Morgan used the word ‘Sir’ for congratulating Morgan on.

 The Kolkata Knight Riders' head coach, Brendon McCullum, also responded to Morgan's message. According to telegraph.co.uk, Buttler has already deleted the tweets in response to social media backlash.

Earlier, Robinson had accepted his mistake and apologised for his unsavoury remarks. “On the biggest day of my career so far, I am embarrassed by the racist and sexist tweets that I posted over eight years ago, which have today become public. I want to make it clear that I’m not racist and I’m not sexist,” Robinson said in a statement.

A homophobic tweet dating back to 2010 from veteran pacer James Anderson has also emerged. "For me, it's 10-11 years ago, I've certainly changed as a person. And I think that's the difficulty, things do change, you do make mistakes," Anderson told the British media.
