Moeen Ali: Cricket Australia to investigate claims England all-rounder was racially abused


Ali has played 52 Test matches for England

Cricket Australia are to investigate claims made by England all-rounder Moeen Ali that an Australian player called him ‘Osama’ during the 2015 Ashes.

England were hosts for the series and won it 3-2 to regain the Ashes.

Ali, 31, has made the accusation in his soon to be released autobiography.

“Remarks of this nature are unacceptable and have no place in our sport, or in society,” said a Cricket Australia spokesperson.

“We have a clear set of values and behaviours that comes with representing our country.

“We take this matter very seriously, and are following up with the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) as a matter of urgency to seek further clarification around the alleged incident.”
