Since Sunday there were many reports that claimed that Moeen Ali had requested Chennai Super Kings to remove a logo of an alcohol brand from his jersey. Reports claimed that the English all-rounder does not drink and thus wanted the logo of SNJ 10000 to be taken off from his shirts. Reports further stated that the franchise had agreed to remove the logo from his shirt. Now, the franchise has spoken up about the same and denied such reports. Chennai Super Kings CEO Kasi Vishwanathan has confirmed that no such request has been made by Ali. IPL 2021: CSK Removes Alcohol Brand’s Logo From Moeen Ali’s Jersey After Request.
