The head of England's Professional Cricketers' Association has said Moeen Ali should take it as a "positive" that he was booed by large sections of the crowd during England's 3-run T20 win over India at Birmingham's Edgbaston ground on Sunday.

Ali's father, Munir Ali, is convinced his Birmingham-born son was targeted because of his Muslim faith and Pakistani heritage, with police treating it as a "non-crime hate-related incident" after a complaint from a spectator.

But the chief executive of England's Professional Cricketers Association Angus Porter, said yesterday, that he hoped there was no fall-out from Munir Ali's comments.

Police are unable to take further action without a complaint from off-spinning all-rounder Ali who does not want to pursue the issue after taking one for 31 and being out for a duck in Sunday's match.
