Hasan reclaims permanent spotlight before rejoicing 27th birthday


Hasan Ali had regained his form back in 2019 in domestic cricket to make his way through to the national team as a permanent member once again.

The right-arm pacer marred with a couple of injuries including back pain which ruled him out of the international cricket scene for two years. His major performance till then was ‘Best Bowler’ in Champions Trophy 2017 with 13 wickets. This performance made him a household name in the country.

The turning point of his career was Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2020 in which he led his team Central Punjab to winning the premium tournament jointly with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. He scored his maiden century off 61 balls in the final and also took five wickets. In that tournament, the pacer bagged 43 wickets in nine matches and scored 273 runs at an average of 24.82.

Later on, he made a comeback in the national team against South Africa in the home series. He took 10 wickets against the Proteas in Rawalpindi Test, finishing the two-matches Test series with 12 wickets.

The lad is currently the highest wicket-taker so far in 2021, having 40 international wickets in 11 matches. India’s Ravichandra Ashin is on the second spot with 38 wickets.

With this performance and status so far, Hasan must be celebrating his 27th birthday today with full joy and happiness.
