Even before the start of the 14th season of IPL, the Chennai Super Kings captain has made a lot of headlines, but the reason is not from inside the ground but from outside.
Moin Ali was a part of RCB last season.
It is not new to have a dispute in sports, but when the stage is of the Indian Premier League, it does not take time for the dispute to take the form of fire from the spark. One such controversy seems to be gathering headlines ahead of the start of the 14th season of the IPL, the world’s most popular T20 tournament (IPL-14). At the center of the controversy is a veteran all-rounder who was removed from the team by Virat Kohli, the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore. Which was joined by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the captain of Chennai Superkings in his team. And which now became a part of a big controversy even before it hit the ground. The name is Moeen Ali.
Till last season of IPL, England player Moin Ali was part of RCB’s team. He even played three matches in the last season of the IPL for RCB in the United Arab Emirates. In this, he scored only 12 runs and could take only one wicket. After this, he was released from the team of Virat Kohli for the 2021 season. In the auction, he joined Dhoni’s CSK.
Wine sticker on jersey
But a logo of alcohol advertising on Jersey created a storm even before the start of IPL. It also surrounded Moin Ali, also CSK management. Noted writer Taslima Nasreen and then Rajasthan Royals fast bowler Jofra Archer also became part of it. The talk started with the news that Moin Ali had demanded the removal of the liquor logo on his jersey, which was accepted by the CSK management. Later, news came from CSK management that Moin Ali did not make any such demand.
Jofra Archer clashed with Taslima
Now a new twist came when eminent writer Taslima Nasreen wrote in a controversial tweet, writing that if Moin Ali had not been playing cricket, he would have gone to Syria and become an ISIS terrorist. After this, the writer was trolled fiercely on social media. In this dispute, England fast bowler and Rajasthan Royals’ part Jofra Archer also jumped in and reprimanded Taslima. Joffra wrote, are you okay, I don’t think you’re alright. Do you like this joke No one will be laughing, you will not be laughing too, now please delete it at least. No one knows where this row of controversy will stop from outside the ground, but now everyone will definitely be watching Moin Ali’s performance inside the ground.
