Gabriel suspended after Root exchange

3rd Test Day 3 Joe Root Century Anchors Rampant England Assault vs West Indies

Root's actions were applauded on social media, with former England captain Nasser Hussain saying Root's reaction would help cement his legacy.

"It's Test cricket and (Shannon) is an emotional guy trying to do everything he can to win a Test match". Root said at the close that things said on the field "should stay on the field", but nevertheless received praise for his stance, including from United Kingdom equality charity Stonewall. "The battle was a good contest, he's had a wonderful series and he should be proud", he further added.

Root himself has not publicly stated what Gabriel said to him and after the end of the third Test - which England won by 232 runs - he said he did not want to incident to overshadow the series.

The charge means Gabriel has accrued eight demerit points - cricket's disciplinary penalty system - in a two-year period, leading to a four-match one-day worldwide ban.

Gabriel was previously given three demerit points in April 2017 for making deliberate physical contact with Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed; and another two in November a year ago, following a coming together with Bangladesh's Imrul Kayes.

Injuries to key players meant he may well have been recalled before the punishment was handed down. "What [prayer] have you got her to say for you today?" "Well done @root66 and @englandcricket #Respect".

When asked post-play about the incident, Root suggested Gabriel may have uttered something he "might regret", but was reluctant to explain exactly what was said. I think it is pretty standard.

There was also praise for Root from worldwide rugby referee Nigel Owens who came out in 2007.

But according to British broadcaster Sky Sports, Root was heard replying to Gabriel: "Don't use it as an insult".

Kirsty Clarke, director of sport at Stonewall - which campaigns for lesbian, gay, bi and trans equality - told Press Association Sport: "Language is really influential and it's great if Joe Root was willing to challenge potentially abusive comments".

West Indies head coach Richard Pybus, speaking on Monday, told BBC Radio's Test Match Special: "If a comment was made we'll review it and if it was untoward we'll be addressing it".

The fast bowler's exact words weren't picked up by the stump mic.

"It's always a proper tussle out there".
