‘‘If Moeen Ali were not stuck with cricket, he would’ve spared more time for “Orphans in Need” as its global ambassador- a British charity that supports, improves & empowers lives of orphans & widows in 14 countries. Anyway, 1 thing is for sure — He wouldn’t tweet Islamophobia for a visa,’’ Saqib added.
Moeen is one of the key players in England’s white-ball setup. The World Cup-winning all-rounder will now be seen in action for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the upcoming IPL. Last week, Moeen had said that every player in the world wants to play under the leadership of CSK skipper MS Dhoni.
“I’ve spoken to players who have played under MS and they tell me how he improves their game. I believe a great captain does that. I think it’s something on every player’s wish list to play under MS. I think it’s the confidence and the clarity he gives people. It’s exciting,” he said.
Moeen Ali was the part of England team that recently toured India to play Test, T20 International and ODI matches. The English all-rounder was bought by Chennai Super Kings for a whopping Rs. 7 crores. He will be seen in action in this year’s IPL, which starts from 9 April.
Moeen Ali has represented England in 61 Test matches to score 2831 runs, including five centuries and 14 half-centuries. As a bowler, he has also claimed 189 Test wickets.
