The fast bowler Hasan Ali has been one of the best performers in the current Pakistan squad. His celebration after taking wickets has also been quite popular among the cricket watching audience. His influence in the national team started when he was the leading wicket-taker in the 2017 Champions Trophy with 13 wickets in 5 matches. Since then, he has been a consistent contributor in the international as well as Pakistan Super League. He played a main role in helping the Islamabad United team to reach the semifinals in 2021 season.
Pakistan team fans, as well as the English crowd enjoyed Hasan Ali going guns blazing. He smashed three sixes in a row off Matt Parkison to bring down the chase to run-a-ball. Hasan hit all the three sixes in the long-on side, and he hit all of them very hard, with all of them going clean and easily in the hands of the crowd. Hasan scored 22 runs off that over with one four, coming just before the hattrick of sixes, which surely regained the hopes of all the fans and the team. Along with this hitting, he also took a five wicket haul which helped the team to contain the England batsmen.
