Robinson and racism, with Vithushan Ehantharajah

Season 10, Ep 7: Vish joins the show in a busy week in England after Ollie Robinson was suspended following his Test debut. We talk through the purpose of his suspension, his history of racist jokes, and what part is played by age – either of the comments themselves or the person making them.

Also this week: Dan Christian for Australia! He's in the touring squad. But how many weeks of quarantine is it reasonable to ask of someone? The England women's contracts are announced, the Heyhoe-Flint trophy is full of runs, and Netherlands keep on winning against bigger teams.
