BBC Sport - Cricket World Cup 2015: Scotland send home Majid Haq Majid Haq took the wicket of Moeen Ali in his team's defeat by England Cricket World Cup 2015: Scotland send home Majid Haq Scotland's all-time leading wicket-taker Majid Haq has been sent home from the Cricket World Cup after posting a race-related tweet. After not being selected for his side's 148-run defeat by Sri Lanka in Hobart,adidas y3 mens, he tweeted: "Always tougher when you're in the minority! #colour #race" The post has since been deleted. Off-spinner Haq,adidas superstar 80s womens, 32,adidas zx 700 mens, has taken 60 one-day international wickets and also holds his country's appearance record with 209 caps. High-profile World Cup indiscretions In 2003,adidas zx 750 mens, Shane Warne was sent home after testing positive for a banned diuretic.

Know your circle." Former England off-spinner Vic Marks "I'm shocked his (Haq) tour should end like this. I understand why any player would be really disappointed about being dropped - it's a horrible feeling, especially if you are a senior player. I can also understand from the Scottish selectors' point of view that four games into the tournament, it was an opportunity to blood a talented young off-spinner and that might be why they took the step to drop Haq. I guess the authorities were left with no real option once he'd delivered his tweet. It was deleted fairly quickly but they had to take pretty severe action, and they did."
