The Ashes series between England and Australia is over. Both the teams are tied 2-2 in the five-Test series. While Australia won the first two Tests, England won the third Test and drew the fourth Test due to rain. In the final session of the last Test, England’s bowlers recovered brilliantly and the team won. In the run-up to the Ashes series, main spinner Jack Leach was ruled out for the entire series due to injury.
With this, England management has brought back all-rounder Moeen Ali, who announced his retirement from Tests in 2021, for the Ashes series. Do you play the Ashes? When England captain Ben Stokes sent a message to Moeen Ali, he responded positively. Ali played a key role in England’s Ashes series draw. Although he missed the Lord’s Test due to a finger injury, he took 9 wickets and scored 180 runs in the remaining four Tests. Moeen Ali took three crucial wickets on the last day to give England a win in the fifth Test.
Moeen Ali once again announced that he will retire from Test cricket after the Ashes. Ashes? Ben Stokes, who sent a message like this before any series, will he come back from retirement again? When asked.. My game is over in this format. He replied with a smile that he would not answer Stokes’ messages. If Stokes message I will delete it. I enjoyed Test cricket. Moeen Ali said that he finished well.
Having lost the first two Tests of the Ashes series, the England team is under a lot of pressure. Moeen Ali played a vital role in the team’s recovery in such situations and regained victories. In the third Test held at Headingley, Labuschenne dismissed Steve Smith and batted at number three in place of the injured Ollie Pope. He scored a crucial half-century in the fourth Test at Manchester.
Moeen Ali did not bowl in the first innings due to an injury in the last Test at the Oval. He came to bat at number seven. But Moeen Ali, who started bowling in the conditions of Australia’s victory in the Test, bowled 23 overs and took 3 wickets. Travis Head takes the catch brilliantly at slip. Australia’s batting order collapsed due to this.
Moeen Ali, who played 68 Tests in his career, scored 3094 runs and took 204 wickets. This English all-rounder, who scored five centuries in Tests, took five wicket hauls five times.
