Hamilton, March 11: Stand-in captain Brendan Taylor on Wednesday apologised on behalf of Zimbabwe cricket team for an article published by one of his country’s daily criticising Ireland pacer John Mooney over his boundary-line catch on Saturday that ended the hopes of the African side in the World Cup. “On behalf of the Zimbabwe cricket team, we just want to express our apologies to @Irelandcricket and John Mooney for the ucceptable article,” Taylor wrote on Twitter. His statement came after Cricket Ireland said it is considering legal action against Zimbabwe Herald after it published a heavily criticised article on Mooney, reports Ireland were playing against India on Tuesday when the piece by Zimbwawe Herald jourlist Robson Sharuko was published online, and immediately drew widespread condemtion from its readers and across social media. Mooney took a pivotal and contentious boundary-line catch to dismiss Sean Williams on 96 in the 47th over against Zimbabwe on Saturday. That helped Ireland seal a five-run victory that condemned the African tion to an early World Cup exit. (IANS)
