PAK vs ENG: Former England all-rounder Moeen Ali has voiced interest in returning to Test cricket under the new head coach, Brendon McCullum. He is open to coming out of retirement to tour Pakistan later this year. McCullum had earlier said that he is open to recalling the CSK all-rounder in the Test setup. The ex-New Zealand batter added that England have been playing an attacking brand of cricket for many years now. If the three lions are successful and people get right behind them, it may pique a bit of interest of a few of those players. Looking for new betting sites in India? We got you covered!

Moeen Ali retired from Test cricket last year following the series against India. However, the southpaw expressed a desire to play in Pakistan, where he has kinship roots,
“When, or if, (England head coach) Baz McCullum wants me, I’ll definitely play in Pakistan,”Moeen said during a commentary stint on BBC Test Match Special
“I have played Pakistan Super League out there a few years ago but it’s not the same, to travel with an England side there having family background from that part of the world will be amazing. It would be a historic event because of England not touring there for so many years,”he added
PAK vs ENG: “Can’t say no to McCullum, he scares me a little bit,” says Moeen
The Southpaw who shared the same dressing room with McCullum while plying his trade for RCB said, the combination of McCullum and Ben Stokes is frightening. He also claims that if he receives a call from a former RCB teammate, he will be happy to do a job for them because his cricket will suit McCullum and Stokes’ attacking mindset.
“To be honest, I’d love to play under him and Stokesy. Both of them have that character about them. They’re very aggressive. I think I would suit their cricket a bit more and I think they feel I would suit them as well,”Ali concluded
In 64 appearances for England, Moeen scored 2914 runs and took 195 wickets, including five centuries and five five-wicket hauls. Moeen has shifted his focus entirely to white-ball cricket and hopes to be named to the English XI for the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year. England have not toured Pakistan since 2005 and will visit the country for a T20I and Test series later this year.
