West Indies cricketer Shannon Gabriel has revealed that he prompted a telling-off from England captain Joe Root by asking him: “Why are you smiling at me? Do you like boys?” Facing a 4-game suspension Gabriel apologized to his teammates or anyone who could be affected by his inappropriate remark. He wrote that he had assumed that kind of language was “sporting banter,” but has since learned his lesson about not using offensive words and he is deeply sorry for what he has done. : “Joe Root and I have since spoken and I am comforted by the fact that there are no hard feelings between us. I think it is fair to say that neither of us ever expected the issue to escalate to the point that it has. Nonetheless, I embrace this as a learning experience and as an opportunity for myself and all athletes to recognize the need for sensitivity and respect in their interactions with all,” he said
