Cricket Australia applogises to Monty Panesar, deletes tweet

Monty panesar

Hours after posting English Cricket Monty Panesar’s picture with the caption “Will the real Monty Panesar please stand up” on its official Twitter, Cricket Australia has apologised to the spinner over the tweet.

The CA posted the picture – taken from Instagram – on its official Twitter account late Thursday morning, day one of the second Ashes Test in Adelaide.

The men were dressed in bright purple, red, green and yellow clothes, depicting children’s TV characters the Teletubbies and orginated from here.

The tweet sparked claims of racism and CA promptly deleted the post.

“We apologise for any offence caused by our earlier tweet. That was certainly not the intention. It has been removed,” it wrote.
