Shannon Gabriel charged for homophobic remark; Joe Root hailed for his response

Gabriel, 30, accepted an ICC charge after he was warned by on-field umpires during the third Test for comments made towards England captain Joe Root. "It felt appropriate to act how I did", added the England star.

In his statement, Gabriel said, "I think I owe it to them (friends and well-wishers) and to all supporters of West Indies cricket to provide an accurate record of what happened".

Article 2.13 addresses personal, insulting, obscene or offensive language directed at other players or match officials.

"During the third day of the St Lucia Test against England on Monday, Gabriel was found guilty of breaching article 2.13 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to "personal abuse of a Player, Player Support Personnel, Umpire or Match Referee during an worldwide match", following an incident with England captain Joe Root", an ICC statement said Wednesday. "There's nothing wrong with being gay", during Tuesday's (February 12) test match.

"Sometimes people say things on the field that they might regret, but they should stay on the field", Root said. "He's had a wonderful series and he should be proud".

Gabriel has been fined 75 per cent of his match fee for the third Test in St Lucia and handed three demerit points, taking his total to eight.

The quick bowler, who was expected to earn a recall for the later part of the five-match ODI series against England, will resultingly miss the first four matches of the forthcoming rubber, scheduled to commence next week in Barbados.

"I just did what I thought was right". Ms Davies said on her Twitter account.

While it remains unclear what Gabriel said, Root's reaction earned him plaudits on social media.

Inspired by a Mark Wood spell which knocked over the hosts for 154, Joe Root and men are now in a commanding position.

"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.

Root, who attracted widespread praise for his response in the middle, did not share details of the incident.
