When we see cricketers on the field, one would feel that the players are always under pressure or are tense during the match which makes fans think that they might be very private in their lives apart from cricket. However, with social media platforms, fans can see what their favourite players are up to. We have often seen players indulge in funny banters on platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
With Indian Premier League going on, top cricketers stars from all over are in India. While they enjoy the games, they often enjoy the little banters on the social media platforms. England batsman Alex Hales is known for his sense of humour which he uses on social media platforms. Hales who is in the Sunrisers Hyderabad who enjoys the top spot in the 2018 edition of the IPL has taken a dig at his English counterpart, Royal Challengers Bangalore all-rounder Moeen Ali on Instagram.
Hales trolls Ali
Moeen has featured in a few games for the RCB who are still in the contention of the playoff spot posted a picture of himself holding a bat and thanking the sponsor who provides the batting gear to the 30-year old. Ali’s batting gear is sponsored by the brand TON. Hales could see the humour in the picture posted by Ali on his Instagram account.
Hales put a laughing emoticon on the picture first and then added a comment on the picture telling Ali that he will be closest to a ton when he is holding the bat of the Ton brand. Notably, Ali had batted on a number of positions in his limited opportunities he has got in this years IPL for the RCB under Virat Kohli.
Interestingly, the ongoing IPL has seen maximum Englishmen feature in the tournament. Ali who was dropped from England’s Test side which will play against Pakistan will continue to play in the IPL while Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler has been recalled by the English board to prepare for the Test series.
