England and Sussex bowler Ollie Robinson is free to return to cricket after being deemed to have served his suspension following an investigation into historic racist and sexist tweets.

The Cricket Disciplinary Commission announced that it had been suspended for eight matches, five of which were suspended for two years, for “a number of offensive tweets” between 2012 and 2014.

However, the panel took into account Robinson’s suspension from the England squad and two matches from Vitality Blast, leaving Robinson free to play immediately, although he was also fined £ 3,200.

The 27-year-old had admitted to violating two ECB guidelines regarding a number of offensive tweets posted when he was between 18 and 20 years old.

The tweets were revealed on June 2, the opening day of Robinson’s first test match for England.
