India vs England, 2021 – Joe Root offers Moeen Ali apology over choice of words


England captain said that Moeen had ‘chosen’ to leave India tour

Joe Root has apologised to Moeen Ali for comments made in a press conference following England’s defeat in the second Test against India.

Root, the England captain, appeared to suggest Moeen had unilaterally decided to leave the tour with two Tests of the series remaining.

“Moeen has chosen to go home,” Root said at the time. “It’s obviously been a very tricky tour for him. As mentioned at the start, if players feel like they need to get out of the bubble, then that’s been an option. With Moeen it wasn’t more asking if he wanted to stay, it was a decision he had chosen.”
