Cricket Australia faced wrath after offensive tweet about Monty Panesar

December 5, 2013 | By

Adelaide, Australia (December 05, 2013): According to certain media reports Cricket Australia was hoist by its own petard when it was forced to delete a tweet regarding Monty Panesar, a Sikh cricketer, on the first morning of the Adelaide Test.

Australian cricket’s governing body tweeted a picture around half an hour before the start of play of four Sikh supporters in fancy dress with the caption “Will the real Monty stand up? #ashes”. It later emerged that the picture had not even been taken at the ground, and had been posted elsewhere on the internet earlier this year.

The CA tweet was deleted in around half an hour. It later posted an apology saying: “We apologise for any offence caused. That was certainly not the intention. [The matter] has been addressed internally and CA acknowledges it was an error of judgement.”
