Rising to fame with his exploits in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 event, Pakistani paceman Hasan Ali installed himself as a key pacer of the country. However, he has been absent from the cricketing framework for a long time. From the conclusion of the World Cup 2019 event to date, he only featured in one first-class game, where he claimed 3 wickets for 100 runs.
Injury issues forced him to sit out of the national team reckoning as well. Fortunately, the veteran of 9 Tests, 53 ODIs and 30 T20Is seems in better condition now as he is set to get back to the competitive cricket and make an appearance for Central Punjab in their Quaid-e-Azam Trophy game against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Lahore on Monday.
Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) director of sports and medicines Dr. Sohail Saleem stated that Hasan has recorded a considerable amount of improvement and even bowled 7 overs in a club game without showing any discomfort. It remains to be seen how Hasan fares after getting back to his trade.
