Hasan Ali, Pakistan’s right-arm fast bowler, has been working for a year to rediscover his form after his performance fell short of expectations, raising doubts about his inclusion in the national team.
Hasan is currently playing for Lancashire in the County Championship and is the leading wicket-taker in both divisions, as well as receiving the Lancashire CCC Player of the Month Award.
The crafty pacer, who won the best bowler award at the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy, recently claimed that removing former South Africa batter AB De Villiers in the Pakistan Super League was his most memorable wicket.
The right arm pacer stated to Lancashire CCC’s LancsTV after earning the Player of the Month Award.
My most memorable wicket is that of AB De Villiers when he was playing for Lahore Qalandars in PSL. I was representing Peshawar Zalmi and I dismissed him, which was special.
Hasan, who was representing Peshawar Zalmi in the fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), claimed the wicket of the South African batting great who was playing for Lahore Qalandars at the Dubai Stadium in 2019.
Hasan Ali has been an important part of Pakistan’s white-ball outfit since his debut, appearing in 58 One-Day Internationals and 49 Twenty-20 Internationals, taking 89 and 60 wickets respectively, while also appearing in 19 Test matches and taking 74 wickets.
The right-arm bowler is also the second-highest wicket-taker in the PSL, with 81 wickets in 64 matches, compared to 9 wickets in the same amount of innings last season.
