Moeen Ali (England Cricketer) Girlfriend, Weight, Height, Age, Records and More

By Kashif Sheikh

Personifying simplicity on a cricketing field, Moeen Ali proudly represents England as one of their finest all rounders ever, and arguably the best in the world right now. He has the patience to grind out 20.1 overs with number 11 to score just 21 runs, and also has the power to race to a 10-12 ball 30-40. He has the guts to flight the ball, and the skills to skid it through. He has the speed to beat the ball in a chase down the third man fence, and also has the accuracy to aim at a single stump. In one statement, he has nearly everything you could ask of a cricketer. A part of English cricket’s domestic arena since 2004, Moeen Ali had to wait for quite a long long time to get the call up he so fittingly deserves. Now, he is one vital cog in what is known as the Modern England Team in ODIs. With World Cup a few months away, Moeen Ali will be eyeing to make the most of his stay in India for IPL 2019 while playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore. RCB used him when all was lost last season and they surely won’t be making that mistake this season. He is bound to be a regular feature for RCB this season, and they would hope to see him fire in his usual style to help them get rid of their poor showing every season.
