Five unsung heroes that help their teams #ClingOnToVictory
#2 Moeen Ali
Joe Root is the talk of the time in the England team. The 25-year-old is in exceptional form and his superior skills in batting have finally provided England with a genuinely consistent and top-class batsmen in limited overs cricket since Andre Strauss.
However, he can’t do it all alone—and Moeen Ali is playing the Robin to Root’s Batman.
One look at Ali and one would instantly say that his style is too classic for the T20 format of the game. Granted, he has had his struggles initially, but is making thorough mark in the team’s fortunes. In the previous game against Afghanistan, he scored an unbeaten 41 runs to take England to a respectable total—at a time when everyone else failed.
He is also more than handy with the ball as he has picked up 5 wickets in the 3 games that he has played in the tournament.Modified 20 Dec 2019, 06:42 IST
