England captain Joe Root hinted Moeen Ali is in contention for a Test recall to South Africa as the spin bowling all-rounder “adds a different dimension” when firing on all cylinders.
Moeen Ali accused Wayne Parnell of being “almost resigned to losing” before conceding the boundary that allowed Essex to depose Worcestershire as Vitality Blast champions at a sold-out Edgbaston.
Ashley Giles has left the door open for Moeen Ali to return to the England Test team despite the all-rounder asking for a break from red-ball cricket.
Former England spinner Monty Panesar expects Moeen Ali to be recalled for the fourth Ashes Test, which starts next Wednesday at Old Trafford.
Moeen Ali believes that “legend in the making” Ben Stokes is England’s greatest ever all-rounder.
