EDINBURGH - Spinner Majid Haq has been cleared to return to national duty with immediate effect by Cricket Scotland, bringing to an end the episode that began with his controversial tweet during the 2015 World Cup. In a press release, Cricket Scotland said the matter "is now considered to be closed." Majid had been sent home from the World Cup after this tendentious tweet about his omission from the Scotland side for a game: "Always tougher when your in the minority!! #colour #race". He subsequently deleted it.
