Wrist Band Controversy
Moeen Ali wore “Save Gaza” and “Free Palestine” wristbands in connection with the Gaza conflict during day 2 of the third Test match of the 2014 series against India. The ICC code bars players from “conveying messages which relate to political, religious or racial activities or causes”. According to the ECB, Moeen’s stance was “humanitarian, not political” and a spokesman stated that “the ECB do not believe he has committed any offence.”
Although Moeen had been cleared by the ECB to wear the bands, the decision was overruled by the match referee, David Boon.
