Cricket: Moeen Ali Was Called ‘Osama’ During Ashes Series
Cricket Australia is to research claims made by England all-rounder Moeen Ali that an Australian player called him ‘Osama’ amid the 2015 Ashes.
Racism on the cricket pitch (or anywhere) shouldn’t be tolerated. It’s a cowardly reaction to outright deny it, rather than apologise and admit to being wrong. Kudos to Moeen for speaking up and challenging the culture of casual racism https://t.co/RmXRYTQ2v5

2015 Ashes was held in England and they won it by 3-2 to recapture the prestigious title.
This allegation was made by the 31-year-old, Moeen Ali in his soon to be released autobiography.
The affirmed slur has all the earmarks of being a reference to Islamist terrorist, Osama Bin Laden. Moeen, who was born in Birmingham, is a Muslim of Pakistani and English legacy.
Moeen asserted the episode occurred amid the 1st Test, where he scored 77 runs and took 5 wickets as England beat Australia by 169 runs at Cardiff.
If AUSSIE player called Moeen Ali a Osama why he didn’t complain at that time.. Why he has issues now a days all countries now targeting Australian cricket.. But they don’t know wounded lion is more dangerous than a hungry lion.. Mighty AUSSIES will give it back..

sorry but I don’t believe a word of what former #EnglandCricketer #MoeenAli has said because IF he was telling the truth he would have reported these racial abuse allegations back in 2015 when the original incident happened and NOT leave it until 3 years later to report it
