Hassan Ali, a 27-year-old national cricketer who has been the focus of cricket fans with his power-hitting skills during fast bowling and more recently batting, says he wants to be an authentic all-rounder in all three styles of cricket.
Hassan Ali is a key member of the national squad announced for 4 T20 Internationals and 2 Test matches against the West Indies.
Hassan Ali, who has taken 195 wickets in a total of 107 international matches, has also scored 691 international runs during the period.
Hassan Ali, who hit 15 sixes off 3 balls in the last ODI against England spinner Matt Parkinson in the last ODI and then hit a six and a four in the last T20 match, said he was not out. Not only in T20 Internationals but also in ODI and Test cricket he wants to call himself an authentic all-rounder and in this regard he is focusing on his bowling as well as batting during net practice.
Hassan Ali says he wants to be an all-rounder like Wasim Akram, Abdul Razzaq and Azhar Mahmood. Due to the batting order, they usually get the opportunity to bat in T20 cricket in death overs, so they are doing special power hunting exercises in these death overs in net sessions. They try to make good practice of sending yorkers and bouncers out of bounds.
Despite the difficult conditions for fast bowling in the last T20 International against England, Hassan Ali, who bowled well, said that in limited-style cricket, better use of variations while bowling has become very important.
Hassan Ali, who was happy to take Ben Stokes’ wicket in the ODI series against England, said he was happy to take five wickets while bowling at Lord’s and then lead Ben Stokes to the pavilion. He said that Ben Stokes was also the first wicket of his first tour of England, so this time too his wicket was a special movement.
Hassan Ali says he is hopeful of a better performance in the series against the West Indies. If a good ball or a good shot can benefit the team, it is a great achievement for them, so they will try their best bowling and power-hitting during the Caribbean Tour.
