Moeen Ali

All Rounder

Moeen is an aggressive and versatile left handed batsman and offbreak bowler who is equally comfortable batting at the top as well as playing the finisher’s role lower down the order. His seemingly innocuous but accurate offbreak bowling has caused the downfall of plenty of batsmen around the world. He has established himself as England’s No. 1 spinner in Test matches at home and his fluent strokeplay makes him a high value player for England.

His stump-to-stump, high accuracy bowling was on display when Team India toured England in 2014 and he picked up a whopping 19 wickets in the Test series. He struck his highest ODI score in the ICC World Cup 2015 when he scored a brisk 128 opening the batting.

In 2017, he became the fifth fastest player in Tests to score 2000 runs and take 100 wickets! He also became the first English player since Ian Botham to score a half century and take 10 wickets in the same Test match. His stock rose sharply in 2017 and his usefulness with both bat and ball is beyond doubt. RCB purchased him after getting into a bidding war to hand him his first IPL contract ahead of VIVO IPL 2018!
