Hasan Ali all set to play in the Bangladesh Premier League
Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali who was their trump card in the recently concluded Champions Trophy is on the line to make his Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) debut after signing a deal with the Comilla Victorians for the upcoming edition of the tournament to be held later in the year. Ali confirmed the news and expressed his happiness and excitement to be part of BPL for the very first time in his career.
“It will be my first appearance in a foreign T20 league and I am very happy about this,” Hasan was quoted by the Dawn. Meanwhile, there are three of Hasan Ali’s colleague who might also turn out for the same team. The names include Fahim Ashraf, Imran Khan Jr and Shoaib Malik who is expected to join Comilla.
Hasan was a part of the Peshawar Zalmi squad in the 1st edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and announced his arrival from that particular tournament. He was the leading wicket taker for Pakistan in the Champions Trophy and his 13 wickets in the tournament helped Pakistan lift their maiden Champions Trophy title.
After conceding 70 in the opening group game against India, the medium pacer returned strongly in the 2nd match against the Proteas which helped Pakistan win that match and kept their hopes alive in the tournament. He was the wrecker in chief in the must win a game against Sri Lanka and followed it up with yet another inspired performance in the semi-final against hosts England.
Meanwhile, two Pakistan cricketers Umar Akmal and Mohammad Sami’s name has sprung up in spot fixing issues and an investigation will be conducted to find out if they violated any of Pakistan’s anti-corruption code. The decision for the investigation was taken after these two names were repeatedly taken by a certain Mohammad Yousuf who is a bookmaker.
Akmal on the other hand also got heavily trolled yesterday for posting a picture with a cool Bentley car in London yesterday. Apparently, Akmal was working hard and in the caption, he wrote,
“Enjoying London after hard work”. Twiteratti started taking a dig at the cricketer almost immediately with some asking from where did he got that Bentley?
