Hasan Ali signs for Lancashire Cricket


Lancashire Cricket has roped in Pakistani seamer Hassan Ali for the first six matches of the 2022 LV= Insurance County Championship, a statement from the cricket club said Wednesday. The 27-year-old is a proven wicket-taker in red-ball cricket, with 72 wickets at an average of 21 in Test matches and an overall First-Class tally of 244 wickets at 23. Hassan first played for Pakistan in August 2016 in a One-Day International (ODI) before making his T20 International debut against England at Emirates Old Trafford.

He then made his Test bow against the West In-dies in early 2017 and has gone on to feature 17 times for his country in red-ball cricket, proving a difficult proposition for batters with his constant tight lines and variations. The right-arm medium-fast bowler has since gone on to claim six five-fors at Test level, including against the number one ranked side, New Zealand.—APP
