England in West Indies: Joe Root showed ‘integrity and leadership’ – Ebony Rainford-Brent – BBC Sport

England captain Joe Root showed integrity and leadership in his response to a comment from West Indies fast bowler Shannon Gabriel, says former batter Ebony Rainford-Brent.

Sky Sports published a clip of Root, 28, telling Gabriel: “Don’t use it as an insult. There’s nothing wrong with being gay.”

Gabriel, 30, was warned by the umpire for the language he used, though his original comment was not picked up.
