Pumped to be coming on the board: Jason Behrendorff
After Chennai Super Kings premium fast-bowler Josh Hazlewood pulled out of IPL 2021 owing to personal reasons, they found themselves in a fix regarding the fast-bowling overseas slot.
Reportedly, they had approached English bowler Reece Topley but there was no confirmation of signing. However, the franchise announced that they have signed Australian left0arm pacer Jason Behrendorff as Hazlewood's replacement.
"Hey CSK fans, I'm absolutely pumped to be coming on board and joining the boys next week. All the best in the first game lads and I can't wait to see you all soon and put on the yellow," Behrendorff said in a video message.
Here's the video message:
Moeen Ali's father reacts to Taslima Nasreen's tweet
Bangladesh born author Taslima Nasreen has sent the Twitter world on a storm after stirring a controversy on Tuesday when she made some vile remarks on England cricketer Moeen Ali. Her tweet read: "If Moeen Ali were not stuck with cricket, he would have gone to Syria to join ISIS." Watch: Andre Russell records 15KMP on treadmill
Soon after her tweet, the entire cricket community lashed hard at her and some even asked her to delete that tweet. England cricketers, who are Moeen Ali's teammates, also extended their support towards Ali.
The tweet and news soon reached England and Moeen's father Munir Ali was furious over her tweet. Munir took to a column for English daily Indian Express to express his feelings.
He wrote: "In her ‘clarifying’ tweet, where she described her original remark as sarcasm, she also says she stands against fundamentalism. If she looks into a mirror, she will know what she tweeted is what is fundamentalist – a vicious stereotype against a Muslim person, a clearly Islamophobic statement. Someone who doesn’t have self-respect and respect for others can only stoop to this level.”
“Truth be told, I am really angry, but I know I would be playing into the hands of people like her if I let my rage get out of control. If I get to meet her someday, I will tell her what I really think of her on her face. For now, I would ask her to pick a dictionary and see the meaning of sarcasm," he added.
“It’s not what she thinks it is. It’s not spewing vile poisonous stuff against someone you don’t even know and then retracting it by saying it was sarcasm. Of all the people to pick on for her agenda, I can’t believe she has chosen my son. Everyone in the cricketing world knows the person he is,” Munir Ali concluded.
