(Cricket) Boozed up Aussie Harris cuts loose
(12-18 15:24)

Australian strike bowler Ryan Harris has found out that winning the Ashes does not guarantee access to Perth's casino. The bowler has launched a foul-mouthed tweet after he was initially refused entry for being drunk.
The team's celebrations after clinching the series against England on Tuesday, hosted by former great Shane Warne, stretched long into the night and Harris, in particular, let off steam, AFP reports.
“A tip for all those heading to Perth! Avoid the crown or casino! Shithole, can't get in if you have had a drink #shitplace #dickheads,'' he tweeted, reportedly at 3:30 am.
The tweet has since been removed but newspapers took a screenshot and it was widely reproduced on Wednesday.
He gained widespread sympathy on social media.
“Poor old Ryan Harris. Apparently denied entry to the Crown in Perth for being too drunk last night. Australian Fun Police at their finest,'' said one tweet.
Another said “Feel ya pain son.''
A sheepish Harris apologized.
“Obviously I made a silly mistake this morning and I tweeted something I probably shouldn't have,'' he said after arriving at his home base in Melbourne, adding that the bouncers on the door eventually let him in.
“As I've heard many times before, don't tweet when you've had a drink.''--AFP
