Pakistan pacer Hasan Ali has made a scintillating return to international cricket post his injury. The pacer has consistently delivered for Pakistan over the last few months and had brilliant tours to South Africa, Zimbabwe and England. In addition to his bowling, Ali’s improvement in his batting is clearly visible. During the last six months or so, Ali has stroked some lusty blows coming down the order, providing the innings momentum in the final overs.

Hasan Ali’s abilities with the bat first came to light when he scored a match-saving 106 off 61 balls for Central Punjab against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the 2020-21 season. Speaking about his batting, Ali revealed he is working hard to improve his skills with the willow and wants to take up the all-rounder's slot in the Pakistan team. He further said he draws inspiration from veteran all-rounders Wasim Akram, Abdul Razzaq, and Azhar Mahmood.

“I want to see myself as an all-rounder in all three formats and I am putting in extra yards in the nets. I am inspired by Wasim Akram, Abdul Razzaq, and Azhar Mahmood and want to contribute in crucial times for my team,” Ali said to Cricket Pakistan

Hasan Ali is currently in West Indies, gearing up for the four match T20I series against the hosts. Pakistan were thrashed 3-0 in the ODI series against England while they could only manage to win one game in the T20I series. The visitors will be hoping for a better show against the T20 Champions who are coming back from a crushing 4-1 win over Australia in the T20Is
