Pakistan’s experienced fast bowler, Hassan Ali in his latest interview expressed his desire to be a part of the Pakistan team again and he is determined to give consistent performances whenever he gets an opportunity to make a strong comeback into the National team.

Hassan Ali, in his interview with Cricket Pakistan, reveals that he himself doesn’t thinks he will be a part of the World Cup plans as the big tournament is just around the corner and there are no more matches as well, and he has been out of the white-ball team since a long time so he doesn’t thinks he will get a chance in the ICC 2023 Cricket World Cup.

‘’ At the moment I don’t think so I am in the plan of PCB for the white ball cricket. Honestly, I don’t think I am in the plans for the World Cup because the World Cup is very close and we don’t even have many ODI matches, we don’t even know the future of Asia Cup 2023 as well but the bowlers that are playing are doing very well for the Pakistan team and I think those deserve to be a part of the World Cup team. I don’t even know if I am in the red-ball cricket or not but I am always ready for my team and my country whenever I will get the opportunity again ‘’, Hassan Ali on his World Cup inclusion.

Hassan Ali was gutted no to retain his place in the white-ball team of Pakistan even though he accepts that his performance was not at his best. He says that he had not performed for Pakistan according to the expectations and was rightly dropped from the team but is still determined to get his rhythm right and will be back to duty for his national team.

‘’ I know my performances in white-ball cricket were not up to the expectations. In my last T20I matches, I was unable to pick up wickets but even though I managed to take two wickets in my last ODI match, still that performance wasn’t enough to retain my place in the National team ‘’, he further said.

Pakistan’s right-arm pacer, Hassan Ali accepts his struggle to claim wickets for Pakistan but says that his performances were not that bad in red-ball cricket but still, he hasn’t met the standard he has for himself.

‘’ During the TEST matches against Australia and Sri Lanka, I struggled to claim wickets but my overall statistics were not that poor, still, I understand why I have been dropped from the Pakistan team. I know that my performance hasn’t met the desired standard and I know that as well ‘’, Hassan Ali on his bowling form for the Pakistan team.

‘’ I firmly believe this is not my team, this is team of Pakistan and the individual who performs consistently and contribute with runs and take wickets are the ones who deserve a place in the team. Sometimes circumstances are not turned in your favor and I have accepted this reality so that I can moved forward ‘’, he further added.

Hassan Ali has recently played the county championship matches in England and has performed exceptionally well with both bat and ball for his team. He has also picked by a fifer and a hat-trick in the last T20 match he played there for his team. Hassan Ali says that he is happy to have his rhythm back and is still working hard to improve his form and play for Pakistan again.

‘’ If you see my stats in the County Championship, you can see that I have taken 17 wickets and a five-wicket haul in my last T20 match. This shows that I am slowly coming back to form. I am focused on my cricket and determined to make a comeback through my performances ‘’, he concluded.
