ICC charges Shannon Gabriel for anti-gay remarks
Dubai, Feb 13 : The International Cricket Council (ICC) has charged West Indies pacer Shannon Gabriel after being accused by England skipper Joe Root hurling anti-gay remark during the recently concluded third Test between both the teams.
The right-arm bowler was also given a warning by the on-field umpires Rod Tucker and Kumar Dharmasena about his language. The umpires, later, laid a formal charge against Gabriel.
The matter will now be dealt by match referee Jeff Crowe, ICC confirmed in a Tweet.
Meanwhile, England won the third Test against West Indies by 232 runs but lost the three-match series as they had conceded defeat in the first two Tests.
Next, both the teams will take on each other for five one-day matches and a three T20 international from February 20 to March 10.
