There is nothing amiss with being gay,’ says Britain cricket skipper Joe Root amid on-field showdown


Britain cricket commander Joe Root said West Non mainstream players quick bowler Shannon Gabriel may have said something he “may lament” in an on-field episode on Monday.

In TV film shared via web-based networking media, Root, who was batting at the time, seems to react to a remark from Gabriel by saying: “Don’t utilize it as an affront. There is nothing amiss with being gay.”

The first remark, made by Gabriel amid the third Test between West Non mainstream players and Britain in Holy person Lucia, was not capable of being heard on the receiver on the stump, and Root was hesitant a while later when asked by columnists what had been said.
