English cricketer Moeen Ali has requested the Chennai Super Kings management to remove a certain sponsor logo from his jersey due to his faith’s ban on alcohol.
The Chennai Super Kings jersey displays a logo of SNJ 10000, which is a surrogate product brand of Chennai-based SNJ Distilleries. The CSK management has agreed to Moeen’s request and removed the logo from his match jersey.
CSK bought the 33-year-old for a whopping Rs 7 crore at the IPL 2021 auction in February. This is Moeen’s second IPL franchise after Royal Challengers Bangalore, with whom he played for 3 seasons since 2018.
“I’ve spoken to players who have played under MS and they tell me how he improves their game. I believe a great captain does that,” Moeen was quoted as saying by the CSK website.
“I think it’s something on every player’s wish list to play under MS. I think it’s the confidence and the clarity he gives people. It’s exciting,” he added.
Three-time champions Chennai Super Kings will be opening their IPL 2021 campaign against Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals on April 10 at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.
