England all-rounder Moeen Ali has confirmed his return to Test cricket
England all-rounder Moeen Ali has declared himself “officially unretired” in the longest format of the game and plans to rejoin the England Test squad. Moeen also confirmed that he discussed his return with new Test head coach Brendon McCullum.
It should be noted that Moeen Ali announced his retirement from Test cricket in 2021. He has currently played 64 Test matches for his country and scored 2914 runs. He has 194 wickets for England with the ball. In 2014, the left-handed batter made his Test debut against Sri Lanka.
The Three Lions’ next Test match will be against Pakistan, and Moeen will be very useful in those conditions.
Moeen recently told the BBC, “When, or if, Baz McCullum wants me, I’ll definitely play in Pakistan.” I played in the Pakistan Super League a few years ago, but it’s not the same. It will be incredible to travel with an England side that has family roots in that part of the world. It would be a historic event because England hasn’t toured there in a long time. I know how much love and support you can get out there; they love cricket. It’s definitely something that appeals to me.”
