Majid Haq: Scotland bowler faces no further action over tweet

Scotland's all-time leading wicket-taker Majid Ha

Scotland's all-time leading wicket-taker Majid Haq faces no further action for posting a race-related tweet that saw him sent home from the World Cup.

Haq, 32, was banished from the squad in March following his omission for the defeat by Sri Lanka in Hobart.

The off-spinner tweeted: "Always tougher when you're in the minority! #colour #race" but later deleted it.

"Mr Haq is free with immediate effect to return to his duties under his contract," Cricket Scotland said.

The governing body added it would not comment further on the matter.

Haq has taken 60 one-day international wickets and also holds his country's appearance record with 209 caps.
