Robinson is suspended pending an investigation by the England and Wales Cricket Board into the racist and sexist tweets he posted in 2012 and 2013, developments that diverted attention from a successful international debut on the field against New Zealand.

Since then, the dispute has escalated, with the ECB becoming aware that an unidentified second player posted “historic offensive material” on social media and political interventions by Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden.

Both have suggested that Robinson’s elimination from Thursday’s second test against the Black Caps is a tough response to his teenage transgressions.

The center of attention is on the side of Joe Root, who stood together in a ‘moment of unity’ against all forms of discrimination just before the Robinson news broke.

Anderson, who has been a part of England’s dressing room since 2002 and this week will become the test player with the most international appearances in the country, said: “This is a difficult time. As players, we are really trying to learn from this.

“We have realized that it is important to try to educate ourselves on these issues, which we continue to do with the ECB and the PCA (Professional Cricketers Association). We’ve all been doing workshops before this series to try to help us improve as a person basically, to try to make sure this kind of thing doesn’t happen.

“Yes, we make mistakes, we all make them and as people we have to try to improve and make sure that this kind of thing doesn’t happen and that people know that it is not acceptable.

“(Robinson) stood in front of the group and apologized and you can see how sincere he was and how upset he was. I think as a group, we have appreciated that now he is a different person. “
