Danny Morrison courts controversy after wearing red turban and fake beard on live TV

New Delhi: When it comes to entertainment in sports broadcasting, Kiwi Danny Morrison has miles ahead of his peers. 

The former Kiwi pacer's energy and enthusiasm is infectious and tends to bring a smile on the faces of players and fans.

However he runs the risk of going overboard at times and that's what happened during the game between Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Mohali.

The 50-year-old was seen sporting a red turban and a fake beard during the pre-game show as well as at the coin toss. 

Danny's new avatar clearly failed to impress some and he was severely criticized across social media platforms.

Morrison defended his actions, stating he was only following orders from the host broadcaster.

Countryman and commentary colleague Scott Styris too sided with the former Kiwi pacer on this issue.
