இங்கிலாந்து கிரிக்கெட் அணியின் வீரர் மொயின் அலிக்கு எதிராக சர்வதேச கிரிக்கெட் பேரவை ஒழுக்காற்று நடவடிக்கை மேற்கொள்ளவுள்ளது.
இந்திய அணிக்கெதிரான மூன்றாவது டெஸ்ட் கிரிக்கெட் போட்டியின் போது அவர் கையில் அணிந்திருந்த பட்டி (wristbands) தொடர்பிலேயே இந்த விசாரணை இடம்பெறவுள்ளது.
அலி அணிந்திருந்த பட்டியில் “Save Gaza” மற்றும் “Free Palestine” ஆகிய வாசகங்கள் பொறிக்கப்பட்டிருந்தமை சர்ச்சையை தோற்றுவித்துள்ளது.
இது தொடர்பில் சர்வதேச கிரிக்கெட் சபையின் அதிகாரி ஒருவர் குறிப்பிடுகையில், இது தொடர்பான தீர்மானம் விரைவில் அறிவிக்கப்படும் என்றார்.
எனினும் இங்கிலாந்து கிரிக்கெட் சபை இது தொடர்பில் தெரிவிக்கையில் அதில் தவறேதும் இருப்பதாக தெரியவில்லை என குறிப்பிட்டுள்ளது.

England cricketer Moeen Ali risked disciplinary action after the International Cricket Council (ICC) said Monday they were “investigating” his decision to wear wristbands in support of Gaza during the ongoing third Test match against India on Monday.
Ali wore wristbands that read “Save Gaza” and “Free Palestine”, while batting during England’s first innings at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.
An ICC spokesman told AFP: “We’re investigating and will report in due course.”
The England and Wales Cricket Board have yet to comment on Ali’s gesture.
The 27-year-old Ali, a practising Muslim of Pakistani descent, was photographed earlier this week helping raise funds for Gaza relief efforts in his home city of Birmingham in central England.
Ali’s wristbands were only on public display for 42 minutes while he made 12 runs off 28 balls before he was caught off India seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
On Friday, Malaysian cyclist Azizulhasni Awang was warned he risked being thrown out of the Commonwealth Games if he repeated wearing gloves bearing the message “Save Gaza”.
Awang could have been ejected from the 2014 Glasgow Games after wearing the gloves in competition on Thursday.
Instead the 26-year-old was given a reprimand and warned not to wear them again.
The Commonwealth Games Federation seeks to avoid its competitions being used for political means.
Though Awang insisted his message was “humanitarian” rather than politically-charged, he issued an apology.
