Ashes fans warned over racial abuse

  Ashes fans warned over racial abuse Cricket Australia has reminded fans they risk bans and police action if they racially vilify players, with the governing body hoping witnesses will come forward after revelations about a comment directed at Moeen Ali. Moeen didn't report the incident that occurred while fielding at Adelaide Oval to England's team management or the match referee during the second Test. It came to light when he spoke to reporters in Perth."Somebody (in the crowd) asked me what time my kebab shop opened," Moeen said.

THE new-look Adelaide Oval created records on and off field plus a winning result on the new drop-in pitch. As Australia marched to a 2-0 lead in the Ashes , record crowds consumed record amounts of food, and drink sales generated a record million in revenue during the new stadium's debut Test.

Moeen a doubt for second Ashes test, says Root

  Moeen a doubt for second Ashes test, says Root England all-rounder Moeen Ali is a doubt for the second Ashes test against Australia as he struggles to recover from a cut on his index finger, captain Joe Root said on Friday. Moeen, whose bowling was affected by the cut during England's 10-wicket defeat at the Gabba, would probably be retained as a batsman at Adelaide Oval in the match starting Saturday even if were unable to bowl, said Root.The skipper, however, would not rule out a potential test debut for legspinner Mason Crane, depending on the conditions and if Moeen was deemed unfit to play.
