Shannon Gabriel charged by the International Cricket Council for alleged homophobic insult

Shannon Gabriel

Gabriel was warned by the umpires for the language he used on day three of the third Test in St Lucia the BBC said.

After the drubbing in the first two Test matches, England have finally found form in the 3rd Test against West Indies at St Lucia.

"The charge is under article 2.13, which relates to the personal abuse of a player, player support personnel, umpire or match referee during an worldwide match".

West Indies cricketer Shannon Gabriel has been charged by the worldwide cricketing body over an "inappropriate comment" to England captain Joe Root.

Root declined to reveal what Gabriel had said in an interview after the close of play, telling Sky News: "It's Test cricket".

Joe Root is pictured in the Instagram post above.

'It's Test cricket. He's an emotional guy trying to do everything he can to win a Test match.

"The more players, fans, clubs and organisations that stand up for equality in sport, the sooner we kick discrimination out and make sport everyone's game".

Until the proceedings have concluded, the ICC say they will not comment further.

"West Indies have played some fantastic cricket, they are a good bunch of guys and it would be a shame if it tarnishes it".

"Stonewall research shows more than half of British people (58 per cent) believe it's important anti-LGBT language is challenged at live sporting events". The battle was a good contest, he's had a wonderful series and he should be proud.

Nasser Hussain, the former England captain, said that Root's actions had been hugely significant.

"For me his twelve words as a role model will be in the end more important than a test hundred or possible victory", Hussain tweeted.

West Indies coach Richard Pybus said there have been no reports of abusive language but will investigate if any are made.

Last month, Pakistan's captain Sarfraz Ahmed landed in trouble after a seemingly racist comment he made to South Africa's Andile Phehlukwayo was caught on the broadcast stump mics and discussed by the commentators.

"Shannon is a proper old-school fast bowler, I think we need to find out if there is anything behind the rumours and then we'll address it".
