Moeen Ali briefly detained at Birmingham airport
BIRMINGHAM (92 News) – England cricketer Moeen Ali was stopped at Birmingham airport on Sunday owing to ‘airport rules and regulations’, while he was on his way to join the rest of the Worcestershire side for the opening game of the 2016 County Championship.
Moeen Ali, one of the most important members of the England squad was single out and made to wait while others made their way past the boarding gates. A humiliated Ali then took to social media handle twitter to vent his frustrations.
However, instead of sympathizing with Ali, many of the twitter users sympathized with the airport security staff, thus compounding Ali’s frustration as well as adding to the controversy.
Some twitter users even went to the extent of comparing Ali to the ISIS militants who travel often by flights. The 28-year old also said that he had never faced such issues while travelling with the rest of the team.
