Joe Root's brilliant response to gay insult

"There is nothing wrong with being gay".

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

Root refused to reveal what Gabriel said, but explained that "as a player, you feel you have responsibilities to uphold on the field and I stand by what I did", according to The Guardian.

Gabriel has been charged under article 2.13 of the ICC code of conduct covering directing "language of a personal, insulting, obscene and/or offensive nature".

In the session post lunch, Gabriel got involved in multiple altercations with Joe Root and Joe Denly and words were exchanged.

Umpires Rod Tucker and Kumar Dharmasena warned Gabriel about his language and the 30-year-old was subsequently charged by the ICC over the incident. He's a good guy who plays hard cricket and is proud to be in the position he is.

"Sometimes people say things on the field that they might regret, but they should stay on the field", Root said.

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. "The battle was a good contest, he's had a wonderful series and he should be proud", he further added.

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.

Root declined to elaborate on the specifics of the verbal altercation and was asked again about the incident after England won the final Test by 232 runs, although West Indies claimed the series 2-1.

"I don't want anything said in the middle to ruin what's been a good Test series for him and his team".
